A fellow user of Kirby Footy discovered this useful tip when using GMail as the mail server.

It overcomes a problem with 'disappearing' email from gmail's inbox.
The problem was that whichever program checks first after a new email has arrived, gmail then hides it from all programs and devices that check the same Gmail account later. (including Kirby Footy)

Gmail have this thing called "recent mode" to overcome this kind of problem.
With "recent" mode enabled, Gmail will send it the last 30 days' mail, even if it has already been downloaded elsewhere.

It's easy to turn Gmail "recent" mode on.
Just precede your gmail user name with "recent:".

For example..
    If your user name was "fred@gmail.com", make it "recent:fred@gmail.com"


Great tip Toni!

Thanks for sharing!!
