The usual recommendation on the mutt-users list is to use something else
than the built in POP3 support in mutt, most people go for
/usr/ports/mail/fetchmail, it's really nice, together with python with
FLAVOR="tk ..." you can get a graphical configuration frontend too.

I'd also recommend you look into /usr/ports/mail/procmail.
