It seems, other lists have the same problem:
I helped me like so:
fetchmail -v 50000
retrieves only mails with a size of up to 50 kb each, if I'm not
mistaken ... :)
what is left on the server(s), read the size of these messages, their
headers and the beginning of their body (if available) on the server,
without any need of downloading them before ...
This (as it seems) nifty little tool even gives you the option to
delete the mails you don't want to download, right on the server.
I installed pop3browser an hour ago, and so far: I love it :)
I read popcheck is similar to pop3browser.
apt-cache show pop3browser popcheck
Enjoy Debian :)
