Hmm. That doesn't work. Although RFC1939 says In order to simplify parsing, all POP3 servers are required to use a certain format for scan listings. A scan listing consists of the message-number of the message, followed by a single space and the exact size of the message in octets. the size calculation depends upon how the pop server internally represents the end-of-line. -- Graham Chiu
