Secure Access by IP Address, Subnet, and Domain

To further enhance security, you can selectively include or exclude single computers, subnets, and entire domains from accessing a POP3 virtual server. By default, all computers have access until you add them to a list of restricted clients. However, you can restrict access by either listing only a few computers, or by specifying computers that don't require the POP3 service. This feature is very useful if you create multiple instances of a POP3 virtual server; for example, by restricting a computer's access to one POP3 server but allowing access to another, you can ensure that the client logs on only to the service configured for that client.
