	try the following:

telnet mail.myisp.com 110

	This should access your ISP's POP server manuallyThen log into it
using the provided commands and delete the mail manually.  If you've ever
used the ftp program to download a file, it's basically the same thing,
only on a POP server.  If you're willing to type in some headers, you can
also send mail using the same method, only using port 25 instead of 110.
My loging proceedure is as follows:

telnet mail.clearwire.net 110
user <my full mail address>
pass<my password>
dele <message number>

	If you need help at any time to see what commands are available, I
just hit <enter>.  If your ISP is running bigfoot too, it should react
the same way.  HTH,
