    Default Exim with Qpopper

    Hi all!
    I'm having issues starting a POP3 service on my link 3 account. I'm running Exim and then tried to apt-get Qpopper. Although there were no errors during the install I can't seem to see port 110 open. Here is the netstat output
    Code:
    # netstat -nap

    The installed Qpopper is a Qpopper version 4.0.5 (non-standalone) What does this mean? It runs under the Exim process? Why is the inetd process running? I've also set the TLS option for Exim. I'm not sure where to look next to check whats happening. Any help will be appreciated

    Thanks in advance

    Default

    "Non-standalone" generally indicates that the software does not listen for incoming connections on its own - instead, it relies on a super-server service (like inetd/xinetd) to start it on client connect.

    Exim is an SMTP service and will not be aware of POP3/IMAP (hence it will do nothing to start qpopper).

    Refer to the INSTALL file (most likely installed in /usr/share/doc/qpopper) or the qpopper Manual for inetd/xinetd configuration instructions.
