Two of my clients have reported the problem, two years apart.  The first
I could ignore, and second means it's time to investigate.  

The first user complained only the first 600 messages could be read, and
always the same 600 were returned.  

The second user is a Delphi developer so I actually believe him, he is
trying to archive a mailbox with a few thousand messages and can only get
the first 300 messages.

Which does not help in getting new messages by deleting old ones first.

Sorry, but that contradicts your comment about mail not being deleted.

I've not tested massive numbers of messages yet myself, I always get in
trouble when trying to fill up mailboxes with lots of messages (except on
my own mail server). 

I still think IMAP would be useful, since I'm told it supports PUSH email
instead of POP3 polling.
