Re: POP servers

People, please don't top-post. I'd  re-arrange this mess propperly
except I don't have the patience right now.


Steve  Lustbader asked  for  a recommendation  for  a POP  server.
popa3d  (8)  is  in  the  base  install. It's  what  Theo  et  al.
recommend. If, for some reason, it isn't good enough for somebody,
that  somebody  should  research   the  alternatives  and  explain
popa3d's defficiencies before posting.
