IPOPD(8)		    System Manager's Manual		      IPOPD(8)

NAME
       IPOPd - Post Office Protocol server

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/local/libexec/ipop2d

       /usr/local/libexec/ipop3d

DESCRIPTION
       ipop2d  and  ipop3d  are	servers	which support the POP2 and POP3	remote
       mail access protocols respectively.  ipop2d and ipop3d can also be used
       by  POP2	 and  POP3  clients  respecitively to access mailboxes on IMAP
       servers by specifying a login user name in the form <host>:<user> e.g.,
       SERVER.WASHINGTON.EDU:SMITH.

       These daemons contain CRAM-MD5 and APOP support.	 See the md5.txt docu-
       mentation file for additional information.

       ipop2d and ipop3d are invoked by	the internet  server  (see  inetd(8)),
       normally	 for  requests	to connect to the POP port as indicated	by the
       /etc/services file (see services(5)).

SEE ALSO

BUGS
       The POP2	and POP3 protocols are intrinsically less flexible  than  IMAP
       and  do	not maintain `read' vs `unread'	state on the server.  As a re-
       sult, most 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	user's
       default.
