My provider has this bug where certain spam with invalid bodies clog up the pipe, causing mail download to stall completely. I've been using a raw POP3 queue tool to clean out this spam. Thunderbird should allow me to flag an account as 'download headers only' so I can flag them as junk, and then have Thunderbird download bodies either when I open the message, or in bulk through a Tool option.

Also, since some spam comes with embedded HTML tags that indicate to the spammer that the message was opened, items flagged as junk should never open.
