Hi all... again.

I have uploaded the new server to dovecot 2.0.12, and still having the 
same issue.
I have even tried changing the hostname, and still the same.
I have checked the site http://wiki2.dovecot.org/Migration at the "POP3 
migration" section, and I can't see the problem. The UIDLs between hosts 
are still the same, and I am lost at what is making me download the 
mails saved on the server.

Any more ideas? They'd be highly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
