The best answer may depend on the pop server. The simplest thing to try is:
read-mail: read pop://user%2Faccount:[password--itnisk--com]
An alternative approach may be to try:
read-mail: read [
If you are feeling adventuresome, you can see if the following patch works
(I have no easy way to test it):
net-utils/url-parser/user-char: union net-utils/url-parser/user-char make
Read-mail: read pop://user/account:[password--itnisk--com]
It would be helpful for the future to know if any/all of these work
(especially the last).
Best of luck.
