Oddly enough, the imap package on many Linux systems is what also provides
the ipop3d daemon:
% rpm -qi imap-2000c
The imap package provides server daemons for both the IMAP (Internet
Message Access Protocol) and POP (Post Office Protocol) mail access
I learned this the hard way just a few days ago. :-(

Why not sbproxy or spamproxy? I like having "proxy" in the name as a clue
to the tool's general function.
