Using POP3 email to implement bugzilla mail functions

Ferindo Middleton Jr
Is there a way to configure bugzilla to use a POP3 mail account to
transport emails. I need to to this because I use a DSL line for
Internet access and using sendmail on my linuxbox has to send email
through my ISP and it looks like relaying so when most other ISP's see
it, it looks like junk email or spam...

but if use my ISP's POP3 service, I could transport the mail without it
looking like relaying or junk spam email.

Newer versions of bugzilla permit mail delivery by SMTP.  That is what
you want.

I tried using SMTP, but when the email gets to the users ISP, the ISP's
junk email filters either put the mails from my server in the users bulk
mail folder or refuse delivering it at all... This happens if I set mail
to be sent via sendmail OR SMTP... I tried both and the mail gets
treated the same.
