Trying to figure out a better way to allow remote users to use their
mailboxes for a reasonably longer time period you can set SIMS up to "treat
authenticated IPs as client host".

I guess my question is this:

How much more secure (or is it more secure) / less of a relay opportunity to
setup APOP?

At that point (running APOP for each box), would SIMS rely on the IP from
the sender's network to verify against its client host list?

If this is the case, then how can you work around this and not totally set
yourself up as a relay?

I guess I'm a bit confused.

Any help is appreciated.
