Description: tiny and secure pop3 daemon

There're lots of different POP3 servers -- with different feature
sets, performance, and reliability.  However, as far as I know, before
I started the work on popa3d, there had been only one with security as
one of its primary design goals: qmail-pop3d.  Unfortunately, it would
only work with qmail, and only with its new maildir format.  While
both qmail and maildirs do indeed have some advantages, a lot of
people continue running other MTAs, and/or use the older mailbox
format, for various reasons.  Many of them need a POP3 server.

	The design goals.

Well, the goals themselves are obvious; they're probably the same for
most other POP3 servers as well.  It's their priority that differs.
For popa3d, the goals are:

1. Security (to the extent that is possible with POP3 at all, of
2. Reliability (again, as limited by the mailbox format and the
3. RFC compliance (slightly relaxed to work with real-world POP3
4. Performance (limited by the more important goals, above).

Obviously, just like the comments indicate, none of the goals can be met
completely, and balanced decisions need to be made.
