 If APOP authentication is failed, class-pop3.php tries normal POP auth
 When a server only accepts APOP authentication, the second process should
 be fail for sure.
 It is nonsence and harmful, because the error message of first process
 (APOP) is over-written by second try (POP).

 To solve the desmiss of APOP fail message, it is neccesary to disable
 normal POP authentication.
 I propose a new class variable $ALLOWLOGIN to decide it.

 Additonaly, $ALLOWAPOP is useless because it is no problem to fix it TRUE.
 (Removing this variable is not included in the patch)
