IPOPd - Post Office Protocol server
ipop3d are servers which support the
POP3 remote mail access protocols respectively.
ipop3d can also be used by
POP3 clients respecitively to access mailboxes on
IMAP servers by specifying a login user name in the form <host>:<user>
These daemons contain CRAM-MD5 and APOP support. See the md5.txt
documentation file for additional information.
ipop3d are invoked by the internet server (see
normally for requests to connect to the
POP port as indicated by the
/etc/services file (see
POP3 protocols are intrinsically less flexible than
IMAP and do not maintain read vs unread state on the server. As a result,
POP based software transfers all the mail from the server to the client and
deletes it from the server. This necessarily locks the user into using only
a single client.
POP3 does not allow you to specify an alternate folder from the users default.
