Need some advice on setting up POP3
Posted on 1997-06-02
Server: Solaris x86 v2.5
I have Qualcomm's qpopper v2.3 software and I have compiled and performed some simple tests with it... But, what I would like to know is if there are any security measures (ie. APOP) which should be followed and also how I can setup a pop only id (ie, using /POPPER/ANY/SHELL as the user shell defined in /etc/passwd) The INSTALL text which came with the qpopper software gave a brief overview of the setups, but I would like to know from any of those individual experienced with having a system on the Internet what they would advise and possibly some steps to acheiving the recommended (secure) setup.
Any advice, comment, or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
PS: I would like some further information on utilizing compile options such as:
-DAPOP or -DCHECK_SHELL
