   Timo, if I may make a request...Unless 1.2 will be released soon,  
would you please also look into the possibility of integrating the  
"back off after failed auth attempts" feature into the 1.1 code  
base?  I need that badly here, to the point that I was considering  
writing such a patch myself.  Hoards of little prepubescent  
miscreants won't stop hammering on my pop3 port and it's driving me
