It really depends on what version of rmuser you have.

In /usr/sbin/rmuser, do you have something similar to this code snippet?:

        if [ -f ${MAILSPOOL}/${login}.pop ]; then
                verbose && echo -n " ${MAILSPOOL}/${login}.pop" ||
                    echo -n " pop3"
                rm ${MAILSPOOL}/${login}.pop

...if so, try putting a . character before each instance of ${login}.pop.
