Should we delete the movemail program, given these problems with it?
No, because non-Posix systems have no choice but use it.  Gnu
Mailutils are blatantly Posix-centric and don't build on anything

Instead of deleting movemail, we could change 'configure' so that '--without-pop' is the default. This wouldn't affect platforms that use GNU Mailutils, and would improve security on other platforms' default installation.
