I probably put it originally in some time ago. It was the only way I
knew at the time to pop email over an encrypted link (port 995). I have
not used it in years as I now use gmail. If I was setting up a mail
service today, I'd probably look at it first for pop3s capabilities.
I did not use it with xinetd.
I'm neutral on dropping it.
