SYNTAX

pop3lite [Options]

DESCRIPTION

POP3Lite is a flexible, RFC 1939 compliant Post Office Protocol 3 daemon.

It implements everything mentioned in the RFC (either natively, or via modules), and some other things that are not strictly POP3 related capabilities (such as modules, PAM support, SQL configuration, etc).

It was written because I found no other POP3 daemon, that would suit my needs. The ones I found were either buggy or not flexible enough. I could try to hack my enhancements in one of them, but writing a brand new one seemed to be an easier task.

As far as I know, POP3Lite is the only daemon that is designed to be extensible.

OPTIONS

--config, -c [file]
  Loads configuration from the specified file, instead of the default one.
--define, -D [field]=[value]
  Defines a configuration field, with the same syntax as in the configuration file.
--inetd, -i
  Tells POP3Lite that it is run from inetd. Only available if compiled with standalone support.
--help, -h Displays command line options and arguments.
--pidfile, -p [file]
  When running as a daemon, write the pid of the master process to the specified file. Only available if compiled with standalone support.
--undefine, -U [field]
  Deletes a given field from the configuration table.
--version, -v
  Displays the version number.

FILES

/usr/local/etc/pop3lite.conf
  Main configuration file.
/usr/local/lib/pop3lite/*.so
  The various modules.

BUGS

As it is with all programs, probably POP3Lite has bugs too. If you encounter one, feel free to contact the author.
