tcpserver is essentially a "replacement" for inetd, often used where many many
connections must be served. But it's just another way to skin the
same cat, i.e. hook up stdio programs to TCP sockets. There are other
options too, but none of them will make the pop/imap server run as a service
that listens directly for connections.
