It is a non-standard extension to POP, supported in some POP client and server implementations. It provides an authenticated alternative to open SMTP posting.

The current standard for authenticated posting is the AUTH command, coming into support on clients and servers. Note that email posting is now a separate standard (SUBMIT) from email relaying (SMTP) event though their core protocol engine is currently the same.
