Back when POP3 was a live protocol, by far the best POP3
implementation was Qualcomm's QPopper.
These days, I'd probably install the combined IMAP/POP configuration
from UW (see <ftp://ftp.cac.washington.edu/imap/imap.tar.Z>), or
maybe dovecot (see <http://www.dovecot.org/>). If you want something
with better performance that will act as a pure e-mail blackbox, then
Cyrus (see <http://cyrusimap.web.cmu.edu/imapd/>). Cyrus is more
difficult to install, but does perform and scale a lot better.
