With POP3 you ALWAYS download ALL messages, headers and bodies.

That is not correct, with pop3, in TB, you can choose to download only
headers, or the complete body.

No, that is not correct, either.

POP3 does not allow to download only the headers, but programmers are clever chaps, and what they do is download the first kilobyte or two of a message, which is probably the headers region. A kilobyte or two of a megabyte message is some advantage ;-)

With imap is far simpler, you really can tell the server to give you the list of message headers.

pop3 is designed to simply download the remote email to a local machine. You can consider imap as a type of database or file server on wich you can upload, download, do queries, read, write...
