- Support for multiple accounts
- Header based mail filtering: filter junk mail before downloading it
- Delivery to mbox files, maildir folders, or a mail delivery agent (MDA)
- TLS support including client certificates
- Support for Internationalized Domain Names (IDN)
- Many authentication methods
- Fast POP3 implementation using command pipelining
- SOCKS proxy support

mpop runs on a wide variety of platforms. It needs little more than an ANSI C
compiler and Berkeley-style sockets. It does not require any additional libraries,
but it can use the following to enhance its feature set:
- GnuTLS. The GnuTLS library provides TLS support. It is highly recommended.
  OpenSSL can be used as an alternative to GnuTLS, but this is discouraged.
- GNU SASL. Using the GNU SASL library adds support for some exotic
  authentication methods. You really only need it if you want to use GSSAPI.
- GNU libidn2. On modern Linux systems with recent glibc and GnuTLS
  libraries, mpop has automatic support for Internationalized Domain Names
  (IDN). On other systems, IDN support is available via libidn2.
