Dovecot: Missing POP3


I am using Gentoo Linux and I installed dovecot mda. the problem is that POP3 binary is missing from /usr/libexec/pop3 where it should be. I cant even find it nowhere else..

Is there any way to force the installation of pop3 in dovecot?

Looks like the pop3d has been disabled in the package USE flags.

Try installing again with:

> USE="pop3d" emerge dovecot

To check the USE flags seen by the installer, try:

> emerge --pretend --verbose dovecot


dovecot, pop3
