mpop runs on a wide variety of platforms. It needs little more than an ANSI C compiler and Berkeley-style sockets.
mpop does not need any additional libraries, but it can use the following to enhance its feature set:
- GnuTLS (>=1.2.0)
The GnuTLS library provides TLS/SSL support. It is highly recommended.
- OpenSSL (>=0.9.6)
OpenSSL is supported as an alternative to GnuTLS.
- GNU SASL (>=0.2.4)
Using the GNU SASL library adds support for the GSSAPI, DIGEST-MD5, and NTLM authentication methods. (The methods USER/PASS, APOP, PLAIN, LOGIN, and CRAM-MD5 are always supported).
- GNU Libidn
Support for Internationalized Domain Names (IDN) is available if you have GNU Libidn installed.
