the messages is does NOT need to be retrieved unless you hit "CR" to read
it, but you do see the "subject line, date, who-from"...  NOT the message
itself unless you hit "CR"

simply hitting "d" would delete it and is never sent to your local pc
that you're using to read it
	- i use pine/mutt/elm ... from anywhere from any "legit" machine

using different email clients will do different things... 
	use what works better for -you- or -them-

avoiding ms outlook ( any version ) is a good thing
