dot-spop3d - user configuration data for The Solid POP3 Server.


A user can specify their maildrop location, type and associated APOP secret in the config‐ uration file ~/.spop3d. The file must be set to mode 0600 (-rw-------) or the server will not honour its content. Maildrop specification consists of three parts, separated by white space characters: MailDrop path type Path should be specified in the same format as the -n option in solid-pop3d(8). Type should be mailbox or maildir. APOP secret specification consists of the word APOPSecret followed by an encrypted secret. You shouldn't change this secret manually. Use pop_auth(1) to do this. Both maildrop and APOP secret specifications may optionally be followed by a mailbox name. This allows, for instance, user+boxA and user+boxB to be used as login names to access different mailboxes, where + means value of UserMailDropDelimiter server setting (see spop3d.conf(5)). The APOP secret associated with a particular maildrop should be followed with the same mailbox name (or lack thereof). If no secret is specified for a maildrop then the user's standard POP password should be used to authenticate instead.
