Does somebody know if there exists a POP3 proxy, that can convert POP
authenication to APOP?

The reasoning behind it is, that I like (for smallish installations with
dial-up internet connectivity) to have POP accounts on an external mail
server, e.g. with the ISP. No user accounts on the firewall, no fetchmail,
just a plain TCP-proxy. Users control when to retrieve mail. But they
transmit their passwords, if they use outlook or netscape email clients.
