FreePOPs is a daemon that acts as a local pop3 server, translating local pop3 requests to remote http requests to supported webmails.

- hwdata (0.177) and pciutils (2.2.1)
hwdata contains various hardware identification and configuration data, such as the pci.ids database and MonitorsDb databases. The pciutils package contains various utilities for inspecting and setting devices connected to the PCI bus.

- perl-Authen-Smb (0.91)
This package supplies a perl module for authenticating against an SMB password server.

- squid (2.6.STABLE1)
Squid is a high-performance proxy caching server for Web clients, supporting FTP, gopher, and HTTP data objects. Unlike traditional caching software, Squid handles all requests in a single, non-blocking, I/O-driven process. Squid keeps meta data and especially hot objects cached in RAM, caches DNS lookups, supports non-blocking DNS lookups, and implements negative caching of failed requests.
