while running test for incoming mail handler, it is showing error -"found unprocessed 255 messages in pop3 folder"

I was configuring mail handler for incoming mail. while running test of that handler it is showing error: found unprocessed 255 messages in the pop3 folder. How to delete those messages. or please suggest any alternative.

That usually means it has found 255 messages, read them, been unable to do anything with them, so it does not delete them, and detects them again on the next run.

You should log into the mailbox, check that the messages are genuinely not needed (if you do need them, then you'll need to work out why they're failing and re-send a new version of them with data it can handle), and delete them there.
