Yesterday I got an email from my wife. That seems to be normal and not unusual. Actually it isn't. Read below:

 

1- My wife is abroad and isn't able to send a mail from her Android phone.

 

2- The mail I got was sent originally one month ago. This second one seems as if it's a new one with recent date.

 

:crazy:

I found this in Google forums:

 

"The source server (where you are fetching the messages from) is responsible for keeping track of what messages have been fetched and which ones need to be downloaded the next time a request is made. If that other server "forgets" which messages have already been downloaded, then the next fetch sees all the past history as new and gets it all again. One way to prevent this is to configure it so the messages are deleted after being downloaded. That way if the server ever "forgets" in the future, there won't be years of old messages showing up as new.

So I would say that either the setting change (delete after one week) or breaking the POP connection with that server would fix the problem."

 

I didn't understand it completely. Not sure if it's related to the problem I have. Anyway, neither me nor my wife have configured a POP server.
