I've been using gnu-pop3d forever, and it now seems that many services / clients require "UIDL" capability on the POP3 server level, and gnu-pop3d apparently doesn't support it. I'm just wondering what any/everyone would recommend as a good, similarly-solid replacement? Or is there a trusted place that has a UIDL-capable version? This seems like it might be promising..

I suggest you look into Dovecot. I can't give really convincing,
technical reasons for liking Dovecot other than it being fairly
featureful, very flexible, and fairly easy to work with. As for keeping
the UIDLs in tact, take a look at the following link to see if there are
any applicable instructions:
I would consider Dovecot ready for primetime. After all, it is now the
default POP3/IMAP server in RHEL5.
