ipop3d and ssl

So I have a machine that I recieve mail at, and I've been trying to set it up so I can do pop on my local network. The machine is debian based, and has ipop3d installed. However, I can't seem to get a regular (non-encrypted) pop session to work. It starts the session, then gives: ERR unknown AUTHORIZATION state command

If I try to do an ssl connection, it sort of works, but in outlook it gives a warning and I have to hit yes each time, and in eudora it just rejects it because the 'host name and host name in certificate does not match'

While I'd like to do ssl, I really don't need it since it is operating behind a firewall in a home network. So how can I configure ipop3d to allow non-encrypted sessions (port 110)? I know intetd is passing the request to ipop3d on that port, but somewhere I'm missing a setting and I think it is rejecting connections.

Anyone have any ideas?

Compile argument

I'm using the University of Washington implementation, not cyrus. I got my UW ipop3d working on my Fedora 10 box by going to the imap-2007e/ directory, then typing:

make clean
make lnp SSLTYPE=unix, copy the newly built ipop3d binary to your /usr/sbin directory and restart xinetd. After doing that, mine worked like a charm.
