You can receive only the headers on the IMAP server???

We're NOT talking about downloading only the headers from
the IMAP server to a client machine, right? If the email is
on the IMAP server, it's already too late: you've got the email
(with an impact to your quota) and you have to get rid of it.
(if you don't like it). If I don't want to delete it manually:
How does it work?
(I also don't want to delete email after a predefined time period!)

But eMail is definitely more common than news,
and to reach "masses" you better use a mailing list.
Is it possible to have both ways at once?
