SYNOPSIS

popper [-k] [-a plaintext | otp | sasl] [-t file] [-T seconds] [-d] [-i] [-p port] [-address-log=file]

DESCRIPTION

popper serves mail via the Post Office Protocol. Supported options include:
-a plaintext | otp | sasl
  Tells popper which authentication mode is acceptable, sasl enables SASL (RFC2222), and otp enables OTP (RFC1938) authentication. Both disable plaintext passwords.
-address-log= file
  Logs the addresses (along with a timestamp) of all clients to the specified file. This can be used to implement POP-before-SMTP authentication.
-d Enables more verbose log messages.
-i When not started by inetd, this flag tells popper that it has to create a socket by itself.
-k Tells popper to use Kerberos for authentication. This is the traditional way of doing Kerberos authentication, and is normally done on a separate port (as it doesn’t follow RFC1939), and should be used instead of using SASL.
-p port
  Port to listen to, in combination with -i .
-t file
  Trace all commands to file.
-T seconds
  Set timeout to something other than the default of 120 seconds.
