[CentOS] POP3 server

I was hoping Dovecot could be not so RFC compliant in this matter. Anyway if 
gets the DELE command the message arrived safely to the client.

Any other POP3 server not so RFC compliant?

Thanks for the answer.

Nope. RFC1939 specifically states that the DELE command only *marks*
the email for deletion. Once the server enters the 'update' state it
will perform the deletion. The only command that can enter that state
is the QUIT command.
