[DeleGate-En] Re: POP Proxy peculiarity

Thanks for your feedback Yutaka,

I actually managed to do it like this:
User*host@servername from the client site with the config
Deletaged -P110 server=pop MOUNT=" * pop://servername/*".

Are you ever going to make a proper knowledge base for delegate with
newgroups/blogs etc?

 |The users have usernames in the format : user@host.. Initialy I configured
Delegate like this
 |delagated -P110 server=pop  . 
 |This did not work as delegate used the host part of the email to connect
to the rmeote POP server so I tried fater i re-read the docs to have a
default server for a specific user
 |delegated -P110 server=pop MOUNT=" user  pop://servername/*"
 |Delegate strangle, after this modification and other  mount options that
rewrite the target host server, still uses the host part of user@host to
connect to the target server. 

If all of your clients are to be hosted with the server "pop://servername"

  delegated -P110 SERVER=pop://servername

without MOUNT, i.e. without rewriting username, will work.
Otherwise, if you have other MOUNT option(s), and "User@host" needs to
be hosted with the server,

  delegated -P110 SERVER=pop MOUNT="//host/* pop://servername/*" MOUNT=...

Generally forwarding "User@Host" to "pop://servername" can be represented
as this:

  delegated -P110 SERVER=pop MOUNT="//*%S/%S pop://servername/*%(1)@%(0)"

It might not be so peculiar if you know that in POP-DeleGate, "User@Host"
is translated to "//Host/User" internally before being applied a MOUNT.
