We download all mails in our intranet mail server using fetchmail. We have about 40 accounts with our mail service provider. From last few months some times some of the user mails are not getting downloaded. If a particular mail does not get downloaded then the newer mails also get stuck in the server as fetchmail skips remaining mails. Currently we delete that mail as a workaround from webmail interface.
Please see below log for user whose mails are stuck on the server.

Why fetchmail is giving error for LAST command? What is a cause or solution of this problem?
My server is CENTOS 4.3 and fetchmail version is 6.2.5 We run fetchmail as daemon and we run fetchmail command as
server zpop.logix.in protocol pop3 user "firstname.lastname@example.org" with password "Passw@rd" is "support" here
