Help me configure Fakemail to start up as xinetd service...

I found a way to capture emails sent from my Drupal installation, and Fakemail seems simple enough.

I can follow the tutorial. Since the application Fakemail needs to be running to capture the outgoing emails, it seems like a good candidate for xinetd, yes?

I've found a simple config tutorial describing starting the service and what the parameters are for the service-specific configuration files. This got me this far,

# default: on
# description: This is a script to start the Sandbox app "fakemail"
service fakemail
        #disable        = no
        #flags          = IPv6
        socket_type     = stream
        protocol        = tcp
        wait            = no
        user            = root
        server          = /usr/bin/
        server_args     = --host=localhost --port=10025 --path=/var/www/fakemail
        log_on_failure  += USERID
But the service is not starting up. Will someone help me with this config file?

Or, recommend another application which uses a similar configuration like Sendmail so I can copy this

The Fakemail application/service is started from command line like so,
# --host=localhost --port=10025 --path=[path_to_email_textfile]

#disable = no
and add:
port = 10025
restart the xinetd service and check
