MikeL's FreeBSD howto - popper and imap

[20181008]
Skip popper, use imap
Sorry, I did not document my original install of popper (I used qpopper for some reason, now lost to time), and imap.
I'm getting logspam from qpopper and imap. Starting to document the attempts here to reduce the problem.

If you don't have it already, you may want to find a sample imapd.conf file from the ports tree, and make changes, or simply add the following to a new file:
    openio_verbosity=quiet
I don't know yet if this works, but I wanted to document so I wouldn't forget it.

This is basically a checklist of how to make popper work. The intent is not to cover everything in detail, merely to point you to each of the tasks that must be performed.

Popper is the program that allows client email programs to fetch their email from this server -- the old way; via POP3. I've not messed with IMAP, so don't even ask.

First time only
