NAME

solid-pop3d - The Solid POP3 Server  

SYNOPSIS

solid-pop3d [-rd] [-n maildropfile] [-t maildroptype] [-a time] [-f configfile]  

DESCRIPTION

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.

Specify a maildrop file (or directory). The following strings beginning with % character are recognized and replaced:

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/bugtraq 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.
