POP and IMAP Updated: 08/24/01


QUALCOMM[R], makers of the Eudora[R] email client for Macs and PCs, is
currently maintaining Qpopper[TM], a modified version of Berkeley's
1.831beta popper. It can be downloaded for free (in source form) from:

o <ftp://ftp.qualcomm.com/eudora/servers/unix/>

The Qpopper homepage is:

o <http://www.eudora.com/qpopper/>

When building, use the 'sysv' target for HP/UX (i.e. "make sysv").

Do NOT install popper 1.831beta (or any version of Berkeley POP). It is
vulnerable to buffer overflow attacks. Use qpopper instead.

A second alternative is the free IMAP developer's kit from The University
of Washington, Computing & Communications department. The kit includes
sources for an imapd server, an `ms' demo client, pop2 and pop3 servers,
and a C-client library. Download from:

o <ftp://ftp.cac.washington.edu/mail/>

If you are running Qmail, Exim, or Postfix as your mail server and you
have maildirs configured, the best way to go is Courier IMAP, available
at:

o <http://www.inter7.com/courierimap/>
