There ya go... it's a hack, but relatively elegant.  pop3proxy would have to 
be altered to recognize the pattern, but that shouldn't be too difficult.  I 
was thinking of a scheme where the proxy would recognize that multiple servers 
were being proxied on the same port, and do the LIST and RETR stuff on both, 
and send the stuff back on that single port, where a filter could be set up to 
route the incoming mail to the correct inbox based on the headers.  Your idea 
might be a bit easier than that...
