Disable pop for some users

You can make this by the following workaround:

starting imapd and pop3d with different imap.conf-files
within these different imapd.conf-files, you can make some appropriate settings 
to differ if the present user may use POP3/IMAP or not.

For myself, i did the authentication job against a PostgreSQL database with 
auxprop. There, it was easy to use two different sql-statements within these 
two imapd.conf-files to achieve exactly this :-)
