I searched archives but did not find answer there: https://lists.gnu.org/archive/cgi-bin/namazu.cgi?query=uidl&submit=Search%21&idxname=bug-mailutils&max=100&result=normal&sort=score

I am having a difficulty with latest mailutils-3.6, which I downloaded and compiled from source from https://mailutils.org.

When I issue the following command I expect movemail only to download new messages from my pop server:

movemail --keep-messages --uidl --verbose --debug-level='mailbox.prot,!trace6' pop://my_username%40posteo.net:address@hidden,de ~/local.mbox

Unfortunately, when I run the above command second and third time, the local.mbox keep getting all the messages from the pop server. In the debug output I see no errors - movemail just asks server capabilities, server announces support for UIDL, then movemail asks for list of messages, server provides that with unique identifier per message, but then movemail just downloads each message, one by one.

I also do not see any temporary file created in my home directory where movemail could be storing the IDs of messages it has downloaded. I also do not see unique ID header in all messages in downloaded local mbox. So I am at loss - how ever movemail could understand which messages it has already downloaded in previous sessions?

What am I doing wrong? The pop server reports support for UIDL and provides unique IDs as much as I can see in debug output. I seem to ask movemail to use these with --uidl option, right?

What is the right way to only download into the local mbox file only the messages which were not previously downloaded in earlier movemail sessions?

Thank you!
