problem with pop3d, messages can be downloaded multiple times

Hi list readers,

some of our users have the problem that their messages are beeing 
downloaded via pop multiple times. Some users even complain that they 
aren't able to delete the doubles as fast as they get the same ones as 
new ones again.

They are using Outlook or Pegasus Mail. Maybe others are having the 
problem too but I only heard of those. I know of two users, who use the 
so called "leave messages on server" feature and I think it only happens 
if the client is set up that way.

Could this be a database issue, where cyrus cannot recognize that the 
client already downloaded the messages?

I am running Cyrus-IMAPD 2.2.12 (with autocreate patch applied) on a 
Gentoo Linux Box.

TIA for any help.
