    open source pop3 servers


    I can't seem to find a good one!

    I'm a newb to mailservers, and i'm looking for a nice debian compatible pop3 server.

    Dovecot has crappy documentation and the howtoforge guide is weak and outdated.

    Popa3d has NO documentation whatsoever.

    I don't know what to look for here.

    What should I be looking for?

    Sendmail is POP and SMTP.
    There's a nice little setup tutorial HERE if you're interested.

    I'm not touching sendmail. I don't have time to deal with something like that.

    And he's right. Mail server's have little to no documentation.

    Unfortunately.

    I guess i'll stumble around with dovecot or popa3d.

    Thanks anway
