I don't know about this, but once someone asked on this newsgroup
about problems getting to his POP3 server. And I tried getting on, but
since I wasn't even on the same continent as his POP3 server and
didn't have an account, I tried logging on as something like test,
password test, or guest, password guest.
(By the way, if you have a server of any sort, be sure to delete the
default accounts or at least change their passwords! I've seen them
used by 419ers and phishers, among others.
You definitely don't want the password for "root" on a *nix system to
be "root". This would be a "hack me" sign pasted on your ass, with a
big red target.)
Anyway, I managed to find a default account that was open and it had
700+ emails. All the ones I looked at were, of course, spam.

One person, four million spams a day, ten valid mails a day...

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Isn't this the same guy who said 64k of ram
ought to be enough for anybody?
The reasons for censoring Britt Ekland's erotic dancing in the room
next to Edward Woodward in the Inn, in the film "The Wicker Man" are
clear to me - after all, decency is perhaps the single most important
factor to be considered in film-making. Too many film-makers
concentrate on the way people think and feel and not, unfortunately,
on how people *should* feel and think.
I have seen both versions of the film, both with and without the
lascivious Miss Ekland's performance, and I feel moved to ask you,
does burning a virgin in a large wooden contraption actually improve
crop yields, and is this not a better approach than employing the
methods of genetic modification? (E-Mail Removed)
