     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.
