pop3 server confusion
Ok, I have some kind of pop3 server running, but I'm not even sure which (which makes it hard to configure). I'm running Debian Lenny (64 bit) and have installed sendmail and openwebmail. I did a 'locate pop3 >> pop3.txt' and the only config files or directories with pop3 in the name was for openwebmail.
I was having trouble even connecting to it at first, as it gave the error: 'password was rejected' but it also said "failed to create /var/spool/pop/.username.pop with uid ####, gid 0"
So I changed the group of that /var/spool/pop directory from mail to root and the pop access seems to work now (it also worked when I made /var/spool/pop writable by all users and that's obviously not a good idea).
Any ideas on how I can find out what is handling pop3 so I can configure it?
btw, I don't think the openwebmail is handling the pop3
