Use getmail to read only new messages

If your getmail is giving multiple copies of messages are each run, then do this in your configuration file in ~/.getmail/ directory.

[options]
verbose = 0
read_all = false
delete = true
message_log = ~/.getmail/log
read_all

is by default True. You need to set it false else it will create many copies of same message and will make your life miserable.
