dovecot in metasploitable


I am using a metasploitable server in Virtual box. As far as I have checked, this does not contain the pop3 mail server. Since, I am not going to connect this system to the internet, how can I install the pop3 server or any necessary package like dovecot to this machine, offline?

pop3 is hardly ever used anymore, why not just use imap even if its an offline server?

Ok, so how can I install that offline? Do I need a package manager manager or is it possible to install directly? (Cause, I have never installed in linux without a manager)

You can download the .tar.gz or .tar file depending from where you get it from when then decompress it with gunzip or tar xvf, then you want to compile it with ./configure, make and make install. Usually there's also a readme.txt file or similar file in the archived package that tells you how to install it. If you need help with specific steps just ask me again.
