With POP3, the message numbering is a software number that can change.
Once that message numbering changes or gets out of sync with the client,
all messages become new to the client.
Updating Surgemail to a new version almost guarrenties soft renumbering.
I have never experimented to see if there was a way to trigger that
within Surgemail, but I suspect it's possible.
That is just a downside to using POP3 that way. Either change or put up
with that 'inconvenience'.
