The POP3 protocol (RFC 1939) has a command to retrieve the headers without
the body, but not the body without the headers.

If the library offered a way to retrieve just the body, it would still have
to retrieve the whole lot, and then trim off the head. So you could just do
that yourself:

  headers, body = message.split(/\r\n\r\n/, 2)
