Yes, NT blows big furious chunks.  However, the Metainfo pop server has
always been pretty solid...

:     With POP?  Are you thinking of IMAP?

Nope.  DELE is a valid POP command.  Most POP mailers do this:

user foo
pass bar
uidl (optionally TOP commands as well..)
retr 1
dele 1
retr 2
retr n
dele n
