Ummm... maybe it's changed since you saw it, but that's not what I see
on that page.
The POP3 protocol (according to RFC 1939) supports only two forms of
authentication: APOP and the USER/PASS mechanism (like you have

That's an excellent question. How do you have kmail configured? Can
you use a packetsniffer to snoop on its conversation with the server?
I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god
than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other
possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.
