Cannot telnet to port 110


Hi guys, I posted a much longer post about the pop problems I am having but have gotten no response.

I am using qmail, with vpopmail. It is installed, and seems to be running. But when i run a nmap localhost, port 110 is not listening. Thus when I try telnet localhost 110, connection is refused.

I am still somewhat new to linux, so I am unsure of where to get the info you guys might need.

Any help is greatly appreciated,

Thanks,
Lost

** Edit - forgot to add that imap mail is working fine

I dont believe so, I did install iptables, but nothing is configured, and the firewall in KDE is set to allow everything

here is a suggestion then. who ever told you to use qmail isnt smart. its very difficult to setup and run. its good for multi domains but if you dont host multi domains then its worthless.

get rid of it and use postfix or sendmail.

depending on your distro get pop3d or cyrus for pop3 access

I just got the suggestion for qmail off of the mandrake server configuration tutorial from this site. It said to follow a toaster for the qmail configuration. I haven't really found the configuration that much more difficult then sendmail, though I don't know enough to really notice the difference.

Ultimetly though, I will be hosting multiple domains on this server, about 10 or so once complete.

AND*** webmin has a module you can install that sets up virtual domains.

Ya, i have webmin installed, been using it for years. I just haven't found much as far the qmail config goes though. I may just wait for my sendmail book to get here, and reinstall it. This has just been driving me nuts

have you even looked at http://www.webmin.com/index8.html yet?

I think you haven't because I use it with sendmail and virtual hosting.
