POP3 access is less straightforward since it requires a UUID
cookie embedded into the username to track deletes, and also
requires embedding the mailbox name into the username (since
POP3 has a 1:1 user:folder mapping).  Of course, a Tor .onion
endpoint is supported for anonymity.

AUTH=ANONYMOUS is recommended for IMAP since bots were attempting
to use compromised logins to scrape the public mail archives for
private info and burning up my CPU.
