tpop3d is yet another POP3 server. It is intended to be fast, extensible, and secure. It is especially extensible in regard to its authentication subsystem. Supported authentication mechanisms include auth-pam (Pluggable Authentication Modules) and auth-passwd to mediate access between users and their Unix-style mailboxes, auth-mysql which uses vmail-sql to mediate access to virtual-domain email, auth-ldap which allows authentication of users against an LDAP directory, auth-other which allows you to authenticate with an external program communicating via pipes, and auth-perl which allows you to authenticate users with custom Perl code. There is integrated support for POP-before-SMTP relaying. tpop3d supports traditional (BSD-format) mailspools and the maildir format of qmail.
