We use pop3d here on our machine.  It's more stable than popper in the
person-who-installed-it's opinion (which wasn't me).  We're having some
odd problems with popper on the university Suns which incline me to lean
away from it (no pun intended).  poppassd allows password changes from the
client (ie Eudora) and can be added to any pop daemon.
