SYNOPSIS

nullpop [-t timeout]

DESCRIPTION

nullpop is a POP3 server that allows logins, but never returns any email. This is useful for certain setups where the user needs an ’account’ setup in their mail client, but no real mail will ever be received.

nullpop is invoked through the internet server, inetd(8). Use a line like this in your /etc/services file:

pop3  stream  tcp  nowait  root  /usr/local/libexec/nullpop nullpop

There is no authentication. Any user name and password are accepted. If SSL is required, use stunnel to wrap the TCP connection.

OPTIONS

-t The timeout for connections.
