RFC 1939, "Post Office Protocol - Version 3", May 1996

Area Assignment: app

Errata ID: 529

Status: Verified
Type: Technical

Reported By: Bernard Treine

Section 7 says:

          The server should never reuse an
          unique-id in a given maildrop, for as long as the entity
          using the unique-id exists.

It should say:

          The server should never reuse a
          unique-id in a given maildrop for as long as the maildrop
          exists.

Errata ID: 4852

Status: Reported
Type: Technical

Reported By: Claude SIMON
Date Reported: 2016-11-02

Section 3 and app. A says:

Section 3 :

Responses may be up to 512 characters
long, including the terminating CRLF.

Appendix A :

- specifies a status indicator length limitation
  of 512 octets, including the CRLF.

It should say:

(See 'Notes')

Notes:

What is written in appendix A does not match with what is written in section 3.
I guess both are wrong. The length of 512 may not concern the length of an entire response, and also not the length of only the status indicator, but the length of the first line returned as an answer by the server, which contains the status indicator, but sometimes some other text too (and, of course, is terminated by CRLF).
As I'm not sure that my guess is correct, and also because I'm not very comfortable with the English language, I am not able to propose a corrected text.

It should say:

Note that if the number of lines requested by the POP3
client is greater than the number of lines in the body,
then the POP3 server sends the entire message. 

Notes:

Extraneous "than" in discussion of TOP command.
