I tested this (with delegate 6.1.22 and 7.0.0) and it doesn't work exacty as I want. The behavior I get is the following:
'USER toto' is rewritten as 'pop://firstname.lastname@example.org'
and that's what I want, but
'USER toto@titi..' is rewritten as 'pop://titi.com/toto'
and that's a problem because I would like
'USER toto@titi..' rewritten as 'pop://localhost/toto@titi..'

Yes, that's my problem now.
Would it be possible to not have a user name with "@host" rewritten to a canonical form like "//host/user" before MOUNT is applied ?
The patch I sent was working for me because I used
and no MOUNT, so the user name with "@host" was not rewritten to "//host/user".
But it seems that MOUNT are not applied if the host is specified in the SERVER parameter...
And I also would like to be able to do this kind of rewrites:
'USER toto_stuff' ---> 'pop://email@example.com'
'USER toto_stuff@titi..' ---> 'pop://firstname.lastname@example.org'
the 'stuff' part can change so I have to match the '_' character.
I tryed these:
SERVER=pop MOUNT="[^_]* pop://YourPopServer/*[%0@titi..]"
SERVER=pop MOUNT="[^_]*_* pop://YourPopServer/*[%0@titi..]"
SERVER=pop MOUNT="[%0_%1]* pop://YourPopServer/*[%0@titi..]"
SERVER=pop MOUNT="[*_*]* pop://YourPopServer/*[%0@titi..]"
but they are wrong.
If it's not possible to do want I want, I can make a patch. And any advise about what must be patched would be greatly appreciated. I would send the result on this list of course.
I will try to have a look in the code at how MOUNT is working.
