How to install POP3 & IMAP


Assalam o Alaikum

In fedora how to install POP3 and imap servers? Please guide me.

I tried:

[root@server mail]# yum install pop3
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
Adding en_US to language list
Setting up Install Process
No package pop3 available.
Error: Nothing to do
[root@server mail]# yum install imap
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
Adding en_US to language list
Setting up Install Process
No package imap available.
Error: Nothing to do

but nothing happens

Then I seriously suggest you to start with basics and just by doing yum install sendmail will not confiure sendmail

Sendmail is basically a smtp server.

You need to learn the difference between SMTP , IMAP and POP3 before going to sendmail dovecot or postfix
