It's a good point.

We support APOP in text file "/etc/apop.passwd"
and in DB2 "/etc/apop.db",  but the twist here,
for DB, we do not provide any tools to actually
create DB file.

On the TODO list.

Note:  Suprisingly we do not support GDB. Strange.

Probably in programs.texi(section pop3d).
It will be incorporated later in the program that
manage/create db/gdb files, when someone find time
to write it.

Note: I think qpopper comes with such a tool.
