This document describes how to make Pegasus Mail work with POPFile. The first part (this one) describes how to change your Pegasus Mail settings to use POPFile as a proxy.

If you want to learn about setting up filtering rules in Pegasus to filter mail based on POPFile's classification, have a look at Moving messages in Pegasus.

If you want to tweak Pegasus to give you a clickable link for each message directing you to the POPFile UI, see Customize Pegasus Mail to Show the X-POPFile-Link.
