CPopProxyMT is a multi-threaded POP3 proxy server class that is a skeleton
for you to work on and modify to suite your own purposes. In its bare condition, it is
a simple POP3 proxy that can be installed and run on any Windows machine.
Obviously some of you might have further uses for it, in which case you can
expand on the class - for example you might want to filter out certain mails or
you might want to log every mail that's received.

Well I wouldn't have written this class if not for Colin Davies who had asked
me whether I'd mind writing such a class for him (he is a man with the most
amazing ideas and I reckon this one is for one such idea of his). Thanks Colin,
this one is for you :-)
- October 10th 2002 - Although most of the code was written somewhere in
mid-2001, this class was written only on 10-10-02
