Secure batch email with UUCP and SSH
The POP protocol is no solution for people (like me) who want to fetch their email in a practical and efficient manner from multiple locations, be it from a dial-up account or a fixed Internet link. Thus, it seemed to me that UUCP over SSH provides great benefits for those people.
UUCP is a batched protocol; therefore, it enables you to leave your email unpolled for long periods of time without risking its loss. ETRN does not, and too many providers will garbage collect unread POP3 or IMAP email on a regular basis.
