There are some implementations to do pop-before-smtp. I'm using
poprelayd in one of the sites I maintain. poprelayd is mentioned by
Olivier Nicole in this thread. Recentry, DRAC seems to be well known.
In anyway, I don't like pop-before-smtp. :-)

When POP connection comes, the POP server saves the IP address where
connection comes into access control database. Then, SMTP connection
comes, it is allowed by check_relay rule of Since
Qpopper 4.X has DRAC support, you don't need extra patch.
