Demon Internet POP3 queue cleaner: pop3clean

Subject: Mail spool cleanup tool: pop3clean
[ PLEASE NOTE THIS WILL ONLY WORK WITH DEMON INTERNET AS IT USES ]
[ SOME POP3 EXTENSIONS ONLY USED BY DEMON INTERNET'S POP3 SERVER ]
Hopefully this will be useful to at least some of you.
I've written a tool that, given a list of mailbox names, scans your POP3
mailstore and keeps those messages addressed to the given list of mailbox
names, and deletes everything else. When not given a list of mailbox
names, it scans your mailbox and populates a list of destination
ftp://ftp.eridani.co.uk/pub/pop3clean/pop3clean.exe (Windows 95 and later)
ftp://ftp.eridani.co.uk/pub/pop3clean/pop3clean.tcl (Tcl source code)
Before running, an "auth" file is required, in the same directory as
pop3clean. It contains two lines, namely username and password in that
When run without any parameters, pop3clean will create a file "boxes"
which lists all the destination mailboxes found in the mail queue.
These are on a line each, in the format email@example.com
This may be edited to suit your requirements, and saved (preferably under
a new name), e.g. keep.txt
When run as: pop3clean keep.txt
it automatically scans the mailbox, deleting all messages that are not
addressed to a mailbox specified in the keep list.
Licence: GPL. Runs in a text window.
