You didn't state what you were trying to delete; but I wanted to delete
mainly spam from obnoxious TLDs and certain Subjects...

I started a short thread on 10/20/19 asking for a POP "delete from
server" action.  Since it didn't seem to get any traction, I created a
python script to delete certain messages from my POP servers...

Comments should be sufficient to set up your own files -- the script
shouldn't need any changes unless you want to increase is capabilities or
turn on some print() statements.

So, yes, it's possible to delete specific messages from a POP server... :)

The problem I'm left with is that the script and CM operate
asynchronously and therefore, there are time slots where some unwanted
messages do get through; but it's helped a LOT for what I wanted...
