  If you get the error:

    inc: -ERR Unknown command: "rpop"

  you're trying to use "rpop" as the mechanism to authenticate the
  user. This mechanism is specified in RFC 1225 and then removed by
  RFC 1460.

  Your POP server is (rightly) rejecting this.

  The POP specification (RFC 1939) states that authentication is done
  either via a USER/PASS pair or via the APOP command.

  Try running inc with -noapop -norpop flags.
