Solaris Package Archive
What is it
qpopper.2.53 is an implementation of the Post Office Protocol
server that runs on a variety of Unix computers to manage
electronic mail for POP compatible clients, often Macintoshes
and MS-DOS computers. Also most web browsers today support POP
so this program enables the reading of your email whilst web
surfing. The server was developed at the University of California
at Berkeley and conforms fully to the specifications in RFC
This qpopper package also requires that the gdbm package for your
machine be installed. This is so the user authentication databases
can be created and maintained.
The bulletin feature gives system administrators a way to
send important announcements to all POP users without having
to do mass mailings.
This package contains four seperate servers, a normal inetd run
server, a stand alone server and both a normal and standalone which
support the APOP authentication protocol. The installer of the
package will have to choose which one they wish to run.
