    I was looking at the documentation and found the following statement in the QuickStart/Installing wiki.

    System Requirements

    You'll need several things to get started with POPFile.

        * The latest POPFile release.
        * An e-mail account that uses the POP3 protocol (most accounts do, although you can't use POPFile with web-based services like Hotmail and Yahoo! Mail without extra software)
        * Around 10 MB free disk space

    Is it still officially true that you need "An e-mail account that uses the POP3 protocol?"

    I realize that the IMAP server is not yet an official part of POPFile. That server removes the requirement for using the POP3 protocol.

    I don't know anything about the requirements to use the nntp, smtp, or xmlrpc interfaces. I don't even know, yet, whether these are stand-alone interfaces. I'm just starting to dig into the wikis to see what I can learn about those parts of POPFile that I don't use.

      It has been a long time since this message, but Jim is right.  How do we deal with that?  POPFile works best with POP3, but that is certainly not required.

        Thanks for bringing this up again.

        I've fixed it the easy way and added a little "introduction" that says that the quick start guide assumes the use of POP3.
