Hi Peter,

> The .ini file doesn't have the POP3 email password in clear?

No, it doesn't.

> That's just for the web interface?

Correct.  You use that if you want to prevent other people on your PC
or network from  controlling your POP3 proxy.

> How/where would I enter the email password in the pop3proxy?  Is that in
> email client (Thunderbird)-

Your email client already knows the password - you don't need to
change anything there.

> More stupidity- does that simply get passed on to the email POP3 server?

Stupidity: No.  Passing the password on: Yes.

Your email client talks to the email server via the proxy - at no
point does the proxy itself need the password.  The password travels
unnoticed through the proxy.

> Sorry for making a false alarm, if that's what I did.

No problem!
