I would also recommend sylpheed-claws and, I think, the version of KMail
not yet in Debian. They have built-in tools which allow you to preview
your mail, and manually delete or download based on subject and sender
and size. This is safer than popsneaker or mailfilter's non-interactive
If the OP is really concerned about bandwidth, I'd recommend a webmail
account with ample storage and a good interface (one that lets you see
fifty or more email headers at a time). That way you can dump Debian
into that account.
