[Oberon] POP server

Bill & others,

wh> If you mean to go off and gather mail *FROM* [one or more 
remote] POP mailboxes, then Fetchmail or Getmail among others.

I want the Oberon Mail.Panel to do that.  If I 
understand the terminology correctly, Mail.Panel
is the MUA and provides the client end of POP 
and POP3.

wh> If you mean actually *receive* mail, then it is an MTA you want,
not POP.

Seems that the facility I need is an MTA for receiving.
Postfix is sending already.  Don't some MTA provide the 
server end of POP?

wh> No clue about Debian's 'package' system, but if the gcc 
compiler and libraries are available for Debian, you could 
perhaps install those and compile from source as Unix folk do.

The packages I've seen mentioned are Cyrus, Courier and 
Qpopper.  Installation of the binaries is dead-easy, 
once I know what to aim for.  Configuration might be 
an effort.

Thanks & best regards,           ... Peter E.
