I have dhcpcd as client and it stores informations from the server in
/etc/dhcpc/dhcpcd-<interface>.cache in binary format and
/etc/dhcpc/dhcpcd-<interface>.info in readable text.
But other clients may use different files and format.
I think that you need also to modify your client so it will ask for pop
and smtp services.
