mripley: POP is a mind-bendingly trivial protocol. I can't imagine it taking more than 5 or 6 hours to get enough working properly, and then perhaps another 5 or 6 hours on the UI, and then another 3 or 4 doing the documentation.

There are also dozens of freely avaiable libraries that do POP and IMAP that you can integrate into commercial software quite freely that'd reduce the development time even further. If I were charged a four figure sum for somebody to develop a POP client for me, I'd expect to get a moon on a stick in the gold packing box it came in.
