I also have an IP-based solution: one realm (passwd file, mailbox
directory) per IP.

If you don't have multiple users with the same name (i.e. jcr@foo and
jcr@bar), then you can just have these users continue to use just their
username and it will fall back to the standard /etc/passwd (or PAM)  
authentication. But if you dod have multiple users with the same name then
they must be separated somehow (i.e. the IP-based solution or adding
domain name to user name in POP3 client).
