popauth - manipulate POP authorization DB
popauth [-init] [-list] [-delete name] [-user name] [-help]
The popauth program allows a POP-subscriber to change the
secret value used to generate their authentication creden-
tials. In addition, the super-user or master POP user may
use this program to either add or remove a user, or to print
public information from it. Only the super-user may ini-
tialize the database. popauth is useful only when the APOP
configuration option is defined. (This configuration option
defines the name of the POP authorization DB.)
Under normal usage, popauth prompts for a new secret, just
like the passwd program. It then updates the POP authoriza-
tion DB accordingly.
With the `-init' switch, the super-user can create a new (or
zero the existing) POP authorization DB.
With the `-list' switch, the super-user or master POP user
can print out public information about the named subscriber
(or all subscribers).
With the `-delete' switch, the super-user or master POP user
can remove a user entry from the authorization DB.
