 +[06] HOW DO I SETUP VHOST/VPM EMAIL ACCOUNTS WITH '​MKVPM'?​
  
 +     Main reception and redirection is handled by the '​mkvpm'​ command. ​
 +     This will allow you to create POP3 mail accounts for addresses ​
 +     ​associated with your domain. ​ You will also be able to create
 +     ​aliases so that you can have typical addresses (like sales@, ​
 +     ​info@,​ root@ .. et cetera) forward to another address or even
 +     your ARPA shell account.
 +
 +     Keep in mind, you must use '​mkvpm'​ before any email reception
 +     or redirection is to occur.
 +     
 +     '​mkvpm'​ also lets you define a shared secret for SMTP authentication.  ​
 +      (SDF Supports the CRAM-MD5, DIGEST-MD5 and PLAIN AUTH Mechanisms)
 +
 +     Once you have used the '​mkvpm'​ command, system updates will
 +     ​incorporate your changes every 2 hours evenly. ​
 +
 +     When you've created a new '​virtual pop3 mailbox'​ (ex user@domain.com)
 +     you can check your messages with these settings:
 +
 +     POP3 SERVER: ​ mail.freeshell.org
 +     POP3 USER:    user@yourdomain
 +     POP3 PASS:    yourpassword
 + 
 +     SMTP SERVER: ​ smtp.freeshell.org
 +     SMTP USER:    yourdomainname
 +     SMTP PASS:    secret
 +     AUTH TYPE:    MD5 Challenge-Response
 +
 +     By default you can have up to 50 VPMs associated with each
 +     ​domain you have VHOSTed with SDF.
 +
 +     '​mkvpm'​ has six commands:
 +
 +     add - adds a new email address
 +     del - deletes an email address
 +     mod - modifies the POP3 password for an email address
 +     aka - toggles (on/off) an alias mapped to an email address
 +     set - creates an SMTP AUTH secret (mandatory for SMTP service)
 +     all - toggles (on/off) wildcard reception to an email address
 +
 +     ​Please note, aliases can not be deleted, they can only be toggled
 +     on or off with the '​aka'​ command.
 +
 +     It is also important to note that you can not define other aliases
 +     if you have wildcarding enabled.  ​
 +
 +     You can also list all of your mail files associated with your
 +     ​domain with the '​vpmstat'​ command. ​ This will list all files 
 +     ​whether they are active or inactive.
 +   
 +     Old or large mailboxes can be cleared out with the '​vpmclear'​ command.
 +
 +     If you wish to access VPM mailboxes via wm.sdf.org, follow
 +     these steps:
 +
 +     Click on '​options',​ then pop3 fetch mail.  Fill in the necessary
 +     ​information with your VPM username and password for the specific
 +     ​account you want to fetch. ​ Specify the folder you want the mail
 +     to go to, by default it goes to your INBOX, but you could have it
 +     go to a different folder. ​ Click 'add server'​. ​ Now you can click
 +     on '​fetch'​ in the main menu at any time you want to check VPM mail.
 +
 +     ​==============SETUP EXAMPLES FOR MACOS AND WINDOWS==============
 +
 +     To use SMTP AUTH with your VHOST or VPM membership, you will use
 +     the following information:​
 +
 +     SMTP server: ​ '​smtp.freeshell.org'​ or '​mail.sdf-eu.org'​
 +     SMTP LOGIN: ​  The domain name for your VHOST or VPM membership
 +     SMTP PASSWD: ​ Your secret which you have set with '​mkvpm'​
 +
 +     ​EXAMPLES for a VPM mailbox of '​bob@bob.freeshell.org'​ with a
 +     ​password of '​bob'​ and an SMTP AUTH secret of '​FUBAR':​
 +
 +     Apple OS X w/ Mail.APP:
 +
 +     Start the Mail.APP program.
 +     Open preferences (CMD-,)
 +     Click on + to add a new account. ​ Fill in the followign:
