It's a POP3 server, naturally.

By default, popa3d serves mail out of the Unix users' mailboxes, and, if
it has been properly installed for a given system (this should have been
done by your VPS provider), it does not need any custom configuration, --
it just works.

If you want to be hosting multiple virtual mail domains, that will
require configuration.  The details of this are very system specific.
Your VPS provider might have setup something already, or they might not.

I'm afraid not.  At least I haven't heard of anyone having done that.

If you're going to simply let it serve the Unix users' mail, you do not
need any Webmin integration since there's nothing to configure.

There're plenty of POP3 servers out there, but I feel that it would be
pointless to make recommendations without knowing your requirements.

What features do you require from a POP3 server?

What VPS provider is that?  What OS?  If it's Linux, then what Linux
distribution?  What SMTP server software is pre-installed?
