Cool

Hi

I am trying to send mail from the system to a user, but it does not go to the /var/mail/user.
So I had a look at my qpopper to see if is was running on my system, its not.
So I started popper manually nothing happens, when I look at the maillog file, the error that comes up every time to start popper is {Unable to obtain socket and address of client: Socket operation on non-socket (88)} What does this mean....? I just compiled qpopper4.0.5 on my Linux Redhat 9.x system.....!

Thanks
Dave
