I know the topic has been subject to discussion here before, but I could
not figure out if there is a preferred way to do it under OpenBSD.
I already browsed some of the archives as well as I did a search on the
net, and figured out that there exist patches for popa3d and a package
named drac, as well as a pop-before-smtp project.
The sendmail project also lists pop before smtp as a means for roaming users.
I also know that pop before smtp is generally not a good thing in times
of smtp authentication, but in this case I am forced to set up just pop
My main interest would be to stick as close to the OpenBSD system as
possible, e. g. using sendmail and packages out of the ports tree
wherever possible. I would patch and recompile sendmail and popa3d only
if there is no other way, because I hate maintaining those extra tours
when upgrading the system.
So, if you have experience with any solution doing this, please give me
a short hint about the advantages/disadvantages.
Thanks in advance,
