#
#
# This file (or one of your own creation, rather) should be located
# in your home directory with the name .poprc. Permissions on this
# file may be no greater than -rw-------, or popclient will refuse to
# use it.
#
# I'd like to point out here that I do not, repeat DO NOT, endorse
# the use of plaintext passwords in the .poprc file. I include the
# password option because SO MANY people asked me about having such
# an option. I don't use it myself. And I recommend that you don't
# use it.
#
# I'd also like to point out that the syntax of this file is still
# under development (during the 3.0 beta series of releases). If you
# would like to suggest revisions, please do.
#
# Comments begin with a '#' and extend through the end of the line.
# Blank lines between server entries are ignored.
# Keywords and identifiers are case sensitive.
# When there is a conflict between the command-line arguments and the
# arguments in this file, the command-line arguments take precedence.
#
# Legal keywords are
# server
# protocol (or proto)
# username (or user)
# password (or pass)
# remotefolder (or remote)
# localfolder (or local)
#
# Legal protocol identifiers are
# pop2 (or POP2)
# pop3 (or POP3)
# imap (or IMAP)
# apop (or APOP)
# rpop (or RPOP)
#
# Basic format is
server SERVERNAME protocol PROTOCOL username NAME password PASSWORD
# Example
server pop.provider.net protocol pop3 username jsmith password secret1
# Or, using some abbreviations
server pop.provider.net proto pop3 user jsmith password secret1
# Multiple servers may be listed
server pop.provider.net proto pop3 user jsmith password secret1
server other.provider.net proto pop2 user John.Smith password My^Hat
# Other possibilities (note use of \ to escape newline -- this is all
# one server definition.
server pop.provider.net \
proto pop3 \
user jsmith \
pass secret1 \
