I see... so the server knows nothing about the success or insuccess of
retrieving messages. Only client knows, so only client may act.
In that case, the only possibility is to have some automatic script that
periodically "cleans" the "cur" subdirectories, as you suggested.
However, not being a programmer at all, I'm far from being able to write
an industrial-grade solution for this. ;-)
