NAME

       qmail-pop3d - distribute mail via POP

SYNOPSIS

       qmail-pop3d maildirname

DESCRIPTION

       qmail-pop3d lets a user read and delete his mail through the network.

       Mail  is  stored  in  a  maildir  called maildirname, normally Maildir, in the user's home
       directory.

       qmail-pop3d is normally invoked under qmail-popup, which reads a  username  and  password,
       and /bin/checkpassword, which checks the password and sets up environment variables.

       qmail-pop3d has a 20-minute idle timeout.

       qmail-pop3d supports UIDL, TOP, and LAST.

       qmail-pop3d  appends  an  extra blank line to every message to work around serious bugs in
       certain clients.

       qmail-pop3d is based on a program contributed by Russ Nelson.
