But with one major flaw: it depends upon JavaMail, and JavaMail wants to
instantiate the MimeMessage.  WE DO NOT NEED A MIMEMESSAGE FOR POP3.  We
only need the stream.  The code may open doors to using existing stores, but
it won't be as efficient as a native store, nor as reliable, due to its
dependence on JavaMail.
