'Snowbox' is a small (600 lines of code) and secure POP3 server written in Perl. It runs exclusive from 'inetd' and is easy to set up. It implements all necessary POP3 commands, supports APOP authentication, and drops root privileges and continues running as a user process after the authorization stage. The maildrop is kept in memory while running; no temporary files are written.
