That's _very_ dangerous. What about dropped connections before all mail is
retrieved? And AFAIK there are clients connecting once, auth'ing, LIST and
QUIT (our script deletes all Mail then) and reconnecting later to actually
fetch mails (would fetch mails - your script deleted them all then...)
- pop3 webmail clients (IMHO broken by design, but anyway...) come to my mind.

Unix is very simple, but it takes a genius to understand the simplicity.
