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/bug‐ traq 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 in. -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.
