No one has brought up security except you.  I make no claims about the relative security merits, but have already outlined, in great detail, the drawbacks of POP for the way most people wish to access email these days and for the fact that once you've downloaded a message, and it's been removed from the server, you have the one and only copy and it's in the mail store of the client you've chosen to use.

POP is an anachronism, period.

A great deal of intelligence can be invested in ignorance when the need for illusion is deep.
