Johanna Amann commented on BIT-1258:

At the moment, Bro does not ship with the pop3 analyzer enabled by default (or with any scripts for it). If you want to activate the pop3 analyzer, you would have to write a script that enables the analyzer and handles the different protocol events just like they are loaded by default for http, smtp, ftp.

Due to the fact that plain unencrypted pop3 is used very rarely nowadays (and that the analyzer could need a bit of clean-up) we will probably not add any scripts for that in the near future.

>          Components: Bro
>    Affects Versions: 2.3

>         Attachments: pop.pcap
> Using attached POP3 sample (extracted from http://leonward.wordpress.com/2009/04/10/openpacketorg-examplecom-pcap-files/) I get pop3 detected in conn.log but nothing else. Should I get a pop3.log or similar out of the box?
