the popa3d goals
Is a POP3 daemon by Solar Designer.
Well, the goals themselves are obvious; they're probably the same for most
other POP3 servers as well. It's their priority that differs. For popa3d,
the goals are:
1. Security (to the extent that is possible with POP3 at all, of course).
2. Reliability (again, as limited by the mailbox format and the protocol).
3. RFC compliance (slightly relaxed to work with real-world POP3 clients).
4. Performance (limited by the more important goals, above).
This port is installed to be run from inetd, which is sufficient
for normal usage. However, it is possible to build a stand-alone
version, should you need better performance.

1. Edit your /etc/inetd.conf to use popa3d. The line should look like this:
pop3	stream	tcp	nowait	root	/usr/local/libexec/popa3d   popa3d
Note: when started via an inetd clone, the logging of connections is left
up to that inetd clone or TCP wrappers.
2. Reload inetd
# /etc/rc.d/inetd reload

The popa3d port currently does not have a maintainer. As a result, it is
more likely to have unresolved issues, not be up-to-date, or even be removed in
the future. To volunteer to maintain this port, please create an issue at:
