There is no seen state in POP3, as far as I know.
Popuseimapflags says, if the message was RETRieved by a pop client,
set the IMAP flag to Seen. It's kind of bogus since the pop server
cannot mark which messages were really seen. With POP3, reading
messages is a local action on the end user's computer. All POP3
does essentially is download and delete.
