The copy that the pop3proxy keeps doesn't need to be kept long term.  Only
long enough to be told it got something wrong.  After a while, it can clear
its cache under the assumption that no news is good news.

Look at the popfile interface (another Sourceforge project).  They save the
messages and use an HTTP interface to interact with the proxy.  Not a bad
solution.
