I found a deserted email account with over 70.000 messages (few months of spam)
in my vpopmail 5.4.3 mail server on FreeBSD…

If I try to pop3 these (Outlook, Outlook Express, Mozilla Thudnerbird)

The problem is its responding like :  

Mail Sever … responded: unable to scan $HOME/Maildir

Pop3 workaround is to not to have more than 1500 messages in the Maildir…

Same problem happened after a week vacation, had to keep moving messages in and out of the maildir….

This would be your pop3 server, not vpopmail. For pop3 pickup, vpopmail is only responsible for authenticating the user.
