POP for dumb workstations

Is anyone working on a variation of the Post Office Protocols for
workstations which don't have an SMTP delivery mechanism?

We're envisioning a protocol where the user runs a mail client process
on the workstation. This process communicates with the mail server
machine for handling both reading and submitting mail. No SMTP process
runs on the workstation. The workstations that we're thinking about are
the smaller workstations (SGI Iris, IBM-PC, etc).
