Hi, I've been using nmh (instead of mh-6.8.x) for quite a
while now and I was wondering about APOP.
Are there plans to have it in place soon? Or to put it
another way, are people working on it?
I think so. Here is a post on the subject from a few months ago.

Subject: Re: RPOP support in nmh?
Hello nmh workers,
What is the current thinking about supporting RPOP in nmh? Our systems
moved to a central RPOP server setup from spooled maildrops and I had
to continue to use mh-6.8.3 to get RPOP. I was hoping nmh would do it
but it seems from the TODO file in 0.17, it's still being considered.
Please consider this a vote for RPOP. Thanks for all the work on nmh.
It is a no-brainer to configure and even seems to run faster.
My understanding is that RPOP has been withdrawn from the RFC's
covering POP. Because of this, I was planning on removing the
code for RPOP. But I was planning on cleaning up the support
