Run popcheck with the -o switch first to make a textfile with all messages, including numbers and sizes.
Edit this file and remove all lines describing mail you want to keep.
Make sure the only lines in the file are those describing the mails you want to REMOVE. Please double-check because there is no turning-back after you execute popcheck with the -i switch.
Run popcheck with the -i switch. All messages matching the message numbers and sizes (in the file) will be removed from the POP server.
Please note that you run this program on your own risk. Its very easy to remove messages that you want to remove, but also to remove messages that you didnt want to remove. BE CAREFUL.
