Although adding CAPA support to popa3d has been on TODO for years, I was not planning on doing that until popa3d would have to say anything beyond RFC 1939's definitions.

Unless there's a client which depends on it, I would rather not declare it. (*) Well, frankly, I was about to add CAPA support into popa3d in 1999, but then put it on the back burner. There are also some problems with RFC 2449 (especially with PIPELINING) that noone has bothered to comment on (let alone fix them in a subsequent revision of the RFC): http://www.imc.org/ietf-pop3ext/mail-archive/msg00083.html Thanks, -- Alexander Peslyak <solar at openwall.com> GPG key ID: B35D3598 fp: 6429 0D7E F130 C13E C929 6447 73C3 A290 B35D 3598 http://www.openwall.com - bringing security into open computing environments Was I helpful?
