    Umm.. no... neither of those will tackle the problem described, but just to make sure we understand the problem:

    A user has an email account containing both wanted and unwanted email messages. "wanted" messages should be retained while "unwanted" messages should be removed.

    Couple of questions:
    1) how many messages are we looking to process?
    2) do you know what format they're in now? (mbox or maildir)
    3) can you access messages through another method, say shell access, IMAP, etc. or is POP your only option?
