You can define POP filters in Settings->Configure POP Filters. Use as criterium that a subject should not match the given text. Then, as filter action, choose Download mail later.

Thanks a lot =)

I will try the POP3 filter:

"match size bigger than 1 Byte" & "download mail later"

That should catch all mail and give me the possibilty to choose what I really want to download. Seems to be the same result like the Thunderbird POP3 "download message subjects only" feature.
