Yes, it does support POP3 and IMAP.

I would suspect that it's not available for other OSes, since it's heavily
hooked into NDS - but I could be wrong.

Just keep in mind that it has abysmal filtering abilities (nothing per message,
and primitive include-exclude-server lists). Also - you have the per-user
license fees to consider (though that's on the honor system - the server
doesn't put a hard limit on accounts).
