NAME
       pop3d - POP3 server process

SYNOPSIS
       pop3d [ -C config-file ] [ -U uses ] [ -T timeout ] [ -D ]
             [ -s ] [ -k ] [ -p ssf ]

DESCRIPTION
       Pop3d is a POP3 server.  It accepts commands on its standard input and
       responds on its standard output.  It MUST invoked by master(8) with those
       descriptors attached to a remote client connection.

       Pop3d reads its configuration options out of the imapd.conf(5) file
       unless specified otherwise by -C.

       If the directory log/user exists under the directory specified in the
       configdirectory configuration option, then pop3d will create protocol
       telemetry logs for sessions authenticating as user.  The telemetry logs
       will be stored in the log/user directory with a filename of the pop3d
       process-id.

OPTIONS
       -C config-file
              Read configuration options from config-file.

       -U uses
              The maximum number of times that the process should be used for
              new connections before shutting down.  The default is 250.

       -T timeout
              The number of seconds that the process will wait for a new
              connection before shutting down.  Note that a value of 0 (zero)
              will disable the timeout.  The default is 60.

       -D     Run external debugger specified in debug_command.

       -s     Serve POP3 over SSL (pop3s).  All data to and from pop3d is
              encrypted using the Secure Sockets Layer.

       -k     Serve MIT's KPOP (Kerberized POP) protocol instead.

       -p ssf Tell pop3d that an external layer exists.  An SSF (security
              strength factor) of 1 means an integrity protection layer exists.
              Any higher SSF implies some form of privacy protection.
