To solve this problem on a *nix platform, have your server run an IMAP
daemon (one particularly good one is Courier IMAP), and use it instead of
POP. POP should be left for dead. Faster than uucp.

This is not a Linux question. In fact, these don't really sound like Linux
questions at all, but as we've come to find out, Free Software can solve
