I use a program called POP3Viewer, that allows me to connect to my 
mailbox and download just the headers and then delete straight from the 
server. It is a FANTASTIC and simple program, which I also use to 
diagnose problems with clients email.

Unfortunatly this wonderful program has disappeared from the internet, 
and googling turns up nothing. The copyright on the program points to 
developers.com.ua, but that site is in Russian and doesn't look like it 
would have it anywhere.
