'tpop3d' is a POP3 server whose authentication subsystem is especially extensible. 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 (for authentication of users against an LDAP directory), auth-other (lets you authenticate with an external program communicating via pipes), and auth-perl (lets you 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.
