Retrieves email headers

'Poppy' individually retrieves only the headers of mail messages from a POP3/IMAP server and then lets you view, save, or delete each. This is especially good for systems with limited disk space, slow connectivity, or no GUI. It is also good for managing your mailbox when your normal mail reader cannot delete mail off the server or is having problems downloading large emails.
