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 

># telnet localhost 110
>user username
>pass password

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.
