The server I'm talking about is Microsoft POP3 Server which comes with Windows Server 2003 operating system and AFAIK there is no way to configure this behavior. When I connect to this server it responds with:
+OK Microsoft Windows POP3 Service Version 1.0 <1853271984@fqdn..> ready.
(fqdn being fully qualified domain name of the server and 1853271984 is something variable, now I see it may be the time stamp you are talking about).

I'm unable to compile DeleGate for win32 myself, would it be possible to obtain this as a win32 binary exe? I know I'm asking for too much, but I've run out of ideas how to solve this any other way.

Thank you very much in advance.
