You can't use telnet to talk to a POP3 or IMAP server--you have to use
POP3 or IMAP. It just happens that when you use popular UNIX
command-line telnet clients, they switch to essentially a raw socket mode
when connecting to non-telnet ports, which lets you type in protocol data
manually. I don't think curl does this raw mode in its telnet client.
