That's quite hard to do, since at the time that this
information is known, the tpop3d process has dropped
privileges and no longer has access to the database. A
program to grind over the log file -- or, with more modern
syslogds, a program which processes log items as they
arrive -- would be a better option, I think.

This is necessary for STLS support, which I will be
looking at for 1.5.1. (Or is it 1.5.0? I haven't been
consistent on this in the past and haven't made up my mind
which is more sensible....)

In view of the fact that God limited man's intelligence,
it is a pity that He did not also limit his stupidity (Adenauer)
