  - History
  - --------------
  - Modified by Peter Davie to include RedHat specific features (e.g. using the 'functions' scripts)

  - NOTE TO PETER DAVIE: Please clarify whether or not this still works on SuSE after your changes.

  - popfile
  -
  - A shell-script wrapper for popfile designed for use in the SysV-init
  - system (/etc/init.d).
  -
  -
  - usage: popfile { start | stop | restart | }

  - See also: LSB, start_daemon (lsb), startproc (suse), install_initd (lsb),
  - insserv (suse), /usr/share/doc/initscripts*/sysvinitfiles (redhat)

  - RedHat comment block...

  - chkconfig: 345 80 20
  - description: popfile is a POP3 proxy and mail filter
  - pidfile: /var/run/popfile.pid # processname: popfile

    -
  - LSB comment block...
  -
  - The bogus 345 run-levels are a workround for a buggy RedHat chkconfig which
  - reads the LSB comment block (incorrectly) as an undocumented 'feature'.
