in mail #775, abhir joshi had described some of the pop3 arguments (e.g. USER, 
PASS, LIST, DELE, QUIT) that cud b passed 2 the pop3 server 2 delete mails 
directly from the server w/o d'loading them.
i tried the above cmds with my email service provider, the LIST cmd shows only 
the mail no. & size. 
i also checked some of the RFCs for pop3, but none of them gave me any cmds 
that i cud use.
i wud like 2 learn about more such cmds & some sites/ books where i cud get 
some info about them.
i actually want 2 write my own pop3/smtp based email client as my software 
engg project.
any help regarding the pop3 & smtp cmds wud b greatly appreciated.
