       solid-pop3d - The Solid POP3 Server


       solid-pop3d [-rd] [-n maildropfile] [-t maildroptype] [-a time] [-f configfile]


       The  Solid  POP3  Server  is an implementation of the Post Office Protocol server that has
       flexibility on mind. It has support for mailbox, maildir, APOP, bulletins  and  few  other
       things. It can work as inetd or standalone server. See README for more details.


       -n maildropfile
              Specify  a  maildrop  file  (or  directory). The following strings beginning with %
              character are recognized and replaced:

              %s     replace it with user name

              %dN    replace it with N-th character of user name

              %%     replace it with single % character

              %m     replace it with mapped user name (read VIRTUALS file)

              %o     replace it with the "original" user name. This is the  user  name  with  any
                     UserMapPrefix  removed.  Unless DoMapping is enabled, and a UserMapPrefix is
                     supplied, this will be a blank string.

              If specified path is not absolute it is treated as relative to user home directory.
              For   example:   /var/mail/%d1/%d2/%s   is  expanded  to  /var/mail/j/u/jurekb  and
              Mail/bugtraq is expanded to  /home/jurekb/Mail/bugtraq  for  "jurekb"  user  on  my
              system. The default is /var/mail/%s or Maildir when mailbox support is not compiled

       -t maildroptype
              Specify a maildrop type.  mailbox and maildir are supported. The default is mailbox
              or maildir when mailbox support is not compiled in.

       -a time
              Specify an autologout time. The following suffixes are recognized:

              s      the time is specified in seconds

              m      the time is specified in minutes

              h      the time is specified in hours

              d      the time is specified in days

              w      the time is specified in weeks

              Seconds are used if no suffix is present. The default value is 2 minutes.

       -f configfile
              Specify a configuration file. The default is /etc/spop3d.conf

       -d     Set server into debugging mode.

       -r     Allow root login. This feature is disabled by default and shouldn't be used.


              User configuration file.

              This file is used by bulletin code to determine last bulletin received by user.

              Bulletins directory.

              Global configuration file.
