I do the exact same thing here using Evolution for a client, and LinFBB
for the BBS. To separate the pops since I pop the same local machine is
I set FBB to handle pop2 (109), and my internet email pop as pop3 (110).

I do something similar for SMTP send. One stop shopping - of sorts.
There I can do anything for packet mail I can do for regular internet
mail - including attachment handling.
If Microsoft intended Windows to be for ham usage,
they would have incorporated our protocols into their kernel.
