sounds like the exact same problem Nat had, turns out that the problem
was that webmail somehow marked the message as "no longer available" for
POP download and thus was not an Evolution bug (evolution couldn't even
I suspect your problem is identical.

There are two alternatives:
1. don't do this, but then you get duplicate downloads. on a
really flakey connection you may never (in a practical sense) get
all your mail and get lots of duplicates.
2. delete the old ones always. this assumes we can trust the
info, otherwise you could remove non-duplicate mails.
I'm leaning toward 2, but it complicates the code a bit.
The only problem is it looks to me that these mails were never
downloaded. Of the 22, I read three on the web which I want to save
by downloading them and archiving. The others I never read.
I should also mention that I am job hunting and some of these messages
were from head-hunters that I did not read for over a week because
they didn't download.
You should always default to being conservative. It's always safer to
get a duplicate e-mail than to lose a potential job opportunity.
I WOULD STOP USING EVOLUTION IF IT EVER STARTED AUTOMATICALLY DELETING
MESSAGES. I even check the Junk directory before deleting spam -- just
to be sure. Duplicate e-mails are a pain, but lost e-mails are worse.
