I like to receive mail on a FreeBSD system and want to
continue to do so but occasionally, I have a message that needs
to be forwarded to a Macintosh in my office. It turns out that
Mac's do not do normal smtp mail like sendmail but one of the
options is pop.
I installed popd on the FreeBSD server and want to be
able to feed messages meant for the Mac to popd at which point,
I should be able to retrieve them on that mac.
The normal scenario is:
Mail comes in and I read it. One message has a 20-mile-long url
to a javascrypt-infested web site that lynx can't handle. I
should forward this message to the Mac and there, I can use
safari to handle that message.
Those are the only messages that will need to go through
popd so I need a simple way to feed them in so the Mac can get
