That's pretty extreme. Users don't care about commandsets and other technical mumbo-jumbo nonsense. They want to READ AND WRITE EMAIL. If an email client can't do it, even though others can, it's a bug. Yes, there are buggy and obsolete POP3 servers, but users can almost never do anything about that... they just want to read/write their email. Any mail client needs to include a backoff approach so that it can deal with reality.
