  The Mail User	Administration application is used by the system administra-
  tor to administer the	mail system. Specifically, the mail administrator can
  change the mail service type of a single user, a group of users, or all the
  users	on a local system. The mail administrator can also delete defunct
  mail user accounts.

  The mail service types are:

    +  Local Mail

    +  Post Office Protocol (POP), which is designed to	allow single user
       computers to retrieve electronic	mail from a POP	server.	The POP
       server might be a computer with a permanent Internet connection where
       its clients might connect to it only occasionally.

    +  Internet	Message	Access Protocol	(IMAP),	which is a protocol that
       allows a	client to access and manipulate	electronic mail	messages on a
       server. IMAP allows the manipulation of remote message folders known
       as mailboxes. IMAP has operations for creating, deleting, and renaming
       mailboxes; for checking for new messages; for permanently removing
       messages; for searching;	and for	selective fetching of message attri-
       butes, text, and	other portions.	 It does not specify a means of	post-
       ing mail; a mail	transfer protocol, such	as SMTP, handles this func-

  Furthermore, the mail	administrator can specify the use of mail passwords
  on users under POP and IMAP.
