I use another program to fetch my mail from all these servers, but
*not* delete it, immediately before running a test. It's not
completely bullet-proof, since there's a small window in which a new
message could arrive in that small window of time and get lost.
However, I haven't had a problem yet.

that setting up the test environment is very painful, since I
basically build a pop server under cygwin and run it locally - I don't
tend to try and debug using my own mail account :)
