It's kind of in TODO list.

These could be done with small modifications to src/pop3/*.c. cmd_quit()
deletes the mails so you could calculate the deleted/left mails there.
For time spent you'd just add some variable which gets set to current
time at startup.

Hmm. It would be nice if this all was possible with plugins. I'd rather
not add all kinds of logging hooks all over.. Have to think about this.

This isn't known by pop3 process at all currently.. It could be
transferred from pop3-login, but that'd require changes to quite a lot
of places.
