at least paul said it in a way i could understand:
he wants to delete _old_ mail in case new mail arrives but would be bounced if 
that _old_ mail wasn't deleted.

old mail could be mail in the Maildir/cur directory. However, if you retrieve 
mail but do not delete it from your pop3 account, this could be for a reason, 
don't you think? If I'm on the road and just check my mail via web2mail.com 
(or something similar).. I might expect the very important job offer/customer 
request/..... to still be in my pop3 account and not being deleted for some 
dumb 7mb spam.

and even if that 7mb mail was more important than any "old" mail i still have 
in my pop3 account: the sender is notified, that i did not get it and may 
therefor send it again.

Pail: if you really want to do this, i think you would have to alter 
vdelivermail.c yourself, as there is no patch, that i know of.
