POP3 Configuration

Consult pop3server-template.xml in SVN to get some examples and hints.

The POP3 service is controlled by a configuration block in the pop3server.xml. The pop3server tag defines the boundaries of the configuration block. It encloses all the relevant configuration for the POP3 server. The behavior of the POP service is controlled by the attributes and children of this tag.

This tag has an optional boolean attribute - enabled - that defines whether the service is active or not. The value defaults to "true" if not present.

The standard children of the pop3server tag are:

bind
Configure this to bind to a specific inetaddress. This is an optional integer value. This value is the port on which this POP3 server is configured to listen. If the tag or value is absent then the service will bind to all network interfaces for the machine If the tag or value is omitted, the value will default to the standard POP3 port, 11 port 995 is the well-known/IANA registered port for POP3S ie over SSL/TLS port 110 is the well-known/IANA registered port for Standard POP3
connectionBacklog
tls
Set to true to support STARTTLS or SSL for the Socket. To use this you need to copy sunjce_provider.jar to /path/james/lib directory. To create a new keystore execute: keytool -genkey -alias james -keyalg RSA -keystore /path/to/james/conf/keystore
handler.helloName
This is the name used by the server to identify itself in the POP3 protocol. If autodetect is TRUE, the server will discover its own host name and use that in the protocol. If discovery fails, the value of 'localhost' is used. If autodetect is FALSE, James will use the specified value.
handler.connectiontimeout
Connection timeout in secconds
handler.connectionLimit
Set the maximum simultaneous incoming connections for this service
handler.connectionLimitPerIP
Set the maximum simultaneous incoming connections per IP for this service
handler.handlerchain
This loads the core CommandHandlers. Only remove this if you really know what you are doing
