[ILUG] script or utility to delete POP mail

I have old email account which I had stopped using for several years
because of spam which I've just realised I need to reactivate (I
forgot to update internic...). However, a quick telnet to the POP port
shows that I have 53MB of spam waiting for me. I don't have server
access to the machine so I can't just go and delete the mailbox. I
also don't have a way of asking the server admins to delete the
mailbox (because the account was terminated years ago....).
So, what I'd like to do is have something connect as a POP client and
delete every mail automatically. It sounds like something that one of
you might have run across before - any ideas?
