GNU pop3d's goal is to provide a small, fast, efficient, free POP3 server fully compliant with RFCs.
The POP3 implementation from the University of Washington is too big and slow, as it loads the entire mailspool file into memory before working.
Cubic Circle's cucipop almost made this unnecessary, but it is not free software (either in terms of free beer or free speech), and violates RFCs too often (try `grep RFC *.[ch]` in the cucipop source directory).
