If you poll via POP3, downloaded messages are marked as read until
they flushed (=deleted) unless you tell fetchmail to --keep them. In
case of an error, they are not flushed, but still marked as read. You
need fetchmail --all then.

If you know there are thousands of messages on the server and
fetchmail is interrupted frequently, set the --fetchlimit parameter to
the max.number of messages to download in one run.
