Don't rule out good old mail/qpopper just yet.

Also, be aware that whichever solution you choose, there are scanners out 
there that won't hesitate to query port 110 with an account guesser, which 
can spawn many daemons depending on how fast your pop server handles it.

You may wanna limit access to port 110 to you and your friends if that's 
possible or look into a pop server that can limit ammount of requests/second 
it accepts from host.
