    I see. I suppose you could do that. I don't see the advantage of IMAP
    though. I would use POP and only download the first bytes of each
    message, then decide which ones to fetch completely. Eudora allows that
    through its "Skip messages over n K" option.

    True. I just discovered my Powermail does it too. Maybe anyhow the imap
    way would allow to entierely skip short spams, just by seeing their
    titles, that would otherwise have been downloaded. I have some days left
    to try a real-life testing before leaving :-)

    Thank you for all this advice, I discovered many things!
