    That's done it - thanks. Wish the docs would mention, somewhere, that you need to do that. Everything seems to assume that once you've retrieved a message, you're done.

      Also, consider using MIME::Head to parse MIME headers.

      To be fair, the module name, Net::POP3, hints that it only does the POP3 protocol. It does not try to parse the headers or MIME attachments or anything. That's some other module's job.
