In addition to the UNIX or VMS pop servers there is also a popserver for 
MS DOS machines. This is the ubiquitous KA9Q program which we use to act
as a gateway for our Novell net to the internet, as well as our popserver.
KA9Q is an internal multitasker and can simultaneously act as a client,
server, and a packet switch. On a large number of FTP sites KA9Q is
resident as net-1229.arc
