Be careful with "retrieve the message body"

Not really a bug, but a gotcha.

On my setup (Eudora, Win XP, PopTray 3.1), the "retrieve the message body" option causes all mail to be marked as read by Eudora (even new, unread mail).

Not a big deal for me cos I sort mail by date, but it may cause some people to overlook their new mail.

This is caused by the type of email server you connect to and has nothing to do with your setup. Normal POP3 servers won't do this but not all servers are normal. Gmail servers for instance can have this happen. I believe that IMAP servers will also do this normally since they expect email to be left on the server.
