NAME
       pproxy -	A POP3 proxy server

SYNOPSIS
       pproxy [--help] [--version] [-l FILE, --logfile FILE] [-r DIR, --rundir
       DIR]

DESCRIPTION
       pproxy is a POP3	proxy. It will wait for	username and password from the
       POP3  client and	authenticate the user. It will then ask	the pcheckd(8)
       deamon on the POP3 server whether the mailbox is	empty. If it is	 empty
       it  will	keep talking to	the client, "simulating" the empty mailbox. If
       there is	mail in	the mailbox it	will  connect  to  the	pserv(8)  POP-
       Server,	tell  it which mailbox to open and then	just forward data back
       and forth between the client and	the server.

       For details see the POPular manual.
