What works

Everything works as specified. If you want to use the ports below 1024 you must be running as root. If you run as a non-root user then you will have to either translate the POP3 and/or IMAP4 ports or have the users specify custom ports. Receiving mail via port 25 will have to use some sort of network address translation. 

What does not

The built-in SSL/TLS does not work with wine. Wine bug 14797 applies to this application as well as Pegasus Mail since both use the same cryptlib functions.  It does work when using STunnel to provide the SSL functions.


What was not tested

Everything was tested.  I am currently using Mercury/32 on a Ubuntu production system.
