       IPOPd - Post Office Protocol server



       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 to access mail-
       boxes  on  IMAP	servers  by  specifying a login user name in the form <host>:<user> e.g.,

       POPd is 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)).


       The  POP2 and POP3 protocols are intrinsically less flexible than IMAP and do not maintain
       `read' vs `unread' state on the server.	As a result, most POP  based  software	transfers
       all the mail from the server to the client and deletes it from the server.  This necessar-
       ily locks the user into using only a single client.

       POP3 does not allow you to specify an alternate folder from the user's default.
