When I use the POP3 class to check messages from a GMail account, it only retrieves the message once (as in, if I have 10 messages in the mailbox, the first time it retrieves 10, the second time it retrieves 0). On an Exchange server I'm testing this code on, however, it gets me every email in the mailbox every time (as in, if I have 10 messages in the mailbox, the first time it retrieves 10, the second time it retrieves the same 10).

Why does this happen?
Is there code or a parameter to use that will make them both act the same?
How do I make the Exchange server act more like the GMail server?

I think that is due to the fact that you probably have messages in your box that arrived before you enabled POP support in your Gmail account.

If you go to the Gmail account settings page, your probably see something like this:

Status: POP is enabled for all mail that has arrived since 6/23/04
