I don't think the POP3 protocol can work that way.  You ask for a message
and you either get it or you get an error telling you that message doesn't
exist.  That would be an abuse of the protocol to return an error for
messages which scored as spam.  It's not at all obvious that any mail client
could go back and get such "nonexistent" messages.

Is IMAP not an option for you?  I use it from my iPod Touch to access my
Gmail account.  That should support what you want to do.
