I would say it's hopeless.  They would mark the account unusable and it
would then (probably) be unusable by any method.  Short of finding a
zero-day on their POP3 software, I'd say it's completely impossible.

The better advice is to use a non-ISP address (even, yuck, gmail) or go
to one of those places that let you buy your own domain and also
provide email (and dns) hosting.  Of course, that's a horse and barn
door type answer.
