I discovered it as well, and have been putting it togather as we speak.
gnu-pop3d is up, and running. exim seems to be delivering.
Your documentation is clear and extremely helpful.

Actually, I am the only user who appreciates the benefits of IMAP, so I
shall simply not mention it to clients. These are typically associate

Once again, thanks.
