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.
