NAME

       pop2front - POP3 Front End

SYNOPSIS

       pop3front-auth cvm program [ args ... ]

       pop3front-maildir [ default-maildir ]

DESCRIPTION

       The  POP3  front end is composed of two pieces: an authentication front
       end and a transfer back-end.

       Connections  are  timed  out  after  $TIMEOUT  seconds  of   inactivity
       (defaults  to  1200 seconds or 20 minutes), or $SESSION_TIMEOUT seconds
       after the connection was established (defaults to 86400 seconds  or  24
       hours).

       pop3front-auth  authenticates  the  username  and  password sent by the
       client using the named cvm.  If successful, it sets up the  environment
       and  executes  program.  It also offers RFC 1734 complient AUTH support
       through ‘‘cvm-sasl’’.

       pop3front-maildir serves messages  via  POP3  out  of  a  maildir.   If
       $MAILBOX  is  set,  its  contents  are used as the path to the mailbox,
       otherwise  the  default-mailbox   argument   must   be   present.    If
       $MAX_MESSAGES  is  set, the total number of accessable messages will be
       limited to that number.  In addition, if either of $MAX_CUR_MESSAGES or
       $MAX_NEW_MESSAGES  are  set, the total number of accessable messages in
       the "cur" and "new" subdirectories respectively will each be limited to
       that number.
