Default mutt-1.5.21p1v0-sasl pop3 - Mail to laptop and Desktop

The issue I am having with mutt1.5 is that the built in pop3 retrival
, with
Code:
set pop_last=yes
set pop_delete=no
is that I am only able to download the emails to one machine. I previously
would download to both my laptop and desktop.

Ideally, changing a setting in my present muttrc would simplest but my searches
suggest that the pop3 retrival function in mutt does not support UIDL.

My present muttrc with personal information redacted.

# Note: $folder should be set _before_ any other path vars where `+' or `='

If there is no easy fix I will install getmail/nmh and use it to invoke getmail.
