I am wondering if a public folder can be accessed as a standard pop account.

The purpose would be to let users receiving spam mails (which would not have been tagged as spam ) to drag and drop them to a PF.

A scheduled task (crontab in Unix world)  would connect to the PF, download them in a unix mailbox and would be used as spam feeders to a unix antispam platform (spamassassin).

We are running, E2K and E5.5 in a mixed mode. PF would be created on E2K (or on E5.5 and replicated with ADC to E2K).

Users use OL2000 on PCs or any IMAP compatible mail client on *nu*x
