pop-before-smtp is a solution to use smtp from mobile locations without using an smtp-auth technique. Basically, you authenticate through pop, if the authentication is successfull, then your IP is marked as "ok for relaying" during a periiod of time. Very usefull when your users connect from different places as they have dynamic IPs.
