Here's the link/magic that made it work..
I setup the xinetd tunnel for pop3 on the linux server hosting JNOS.
Then I added a popmail client on the JNOS system pointing at the linux
popmail addserver LINUX pop3 nwpnos
A popmail kick LINUX command polls gmail so fast I can't see what
happens... I guess that's a good thing - after 1200 baud.
My quest to save the messages in different mail boxes has taken a bit
of a slowdown - it appears the pop session fetches multiple messages
and then saves them all at one time. I may have to limit it to
fetching one message at a time for a quick fix to pulling out the
mailbox address from the To line like this example:
To: nwpnos+ac7yy at gmail.com
