ipop - imap services


I have successfully installed imap-2002d-3.i386.rpm

However using:

service start ipop3

returns "ipop3: unrecognized service"

and the same happens trying to start imap.

Directly starting:

/usr/sbin/ipop3d

returns:
+OK POP3 [localhost].[localdomain] v2003.83rh server ready

and similar result for starting imap.


Question:

(sorry..)

My Question was:

1. Why is this "unrecognized service"? ... Is there something wrong?

2. Can someone point me to documents to get started using the new POP3 server?

i.e.
setting up and account

Lastly,

I have firewall rules in place and will need to verify/update them accordingly... I am not sure where to proceed here... again.. any previous threads or links to helpful information would be more than helpful... I have used Google and surprisingly, cannot seem to find relevent documents.


Thanks in Advance!!!!

Question:
First, you can not start ipop3 and imap using service ipop3d start
because ipop3 and imap is start under xinetd service,so there is no service for pop3. if you want to start your pop3, you must do /etc/rc.d/init.d/xinetd restart

Well.. this is good to know.. Thanks for clarifying..!

I understand at least some of the benefits for using xinetd (to manager connections, services, etc...) so is there any reason other services (i.e. https, ftp, etc) don't run under this 'umbrella' as well?

Opps!

I am using iptables..

I am trying to figure out why/how I am now pop'ing into this machine w/o explicitly opening those ports (110) (eth0/eth1 are not trusted), and at the same time, continue with opening port 25 for my next project (establishing SMTP)..


Thanks Joe,... your posts (this and others I've seen), have been a big help.

If i am not wrong in Linux there are two type service :
1 ) stand alone service : its mean you start the service directly
ex. sendmail, squid,etc
2 ) parental service : its mean if you want to start the daemon you must tell its father to start the daemon for you, Ex : ftp,pop3,http,etc

Maybe you can configure it to accept the packets from your networks, not much than that.
