POP download from now on

driftux asked:

Is it possible to configure options on email server containing Postfix and Dovecot, features
similar to Gmail settings:

  1. Enable POP for all mail (even mail that’s already been downloaded)

  2. Enable POP for mail that arrives from now on

I looked a lot at Google, but was unsuccessful. So if anyone has an idea, I would appreciate that.

My answer:


You can easily configure Dovecot to act as a POP3 server. Simply add the protocols to the Dovecot configuration file. For example:

protocols = imap imaps pop3 pop3s
