pop3 access log on RH9.. where?

I have a redhat9 system running postfix, POP3, & IMAP.

I have an user that is concerned about someone else checking his POP3 mail... I cannot seem to find where this is being logged. I need to find the logfile that shows POP3 access coming from which IP address. This is on by default on Verio's FreeBSD VPS server in the messages log file, but I cannot seem to find the similar on a RH9 server, I'm hoping I am just looking in the wrong places.

I don't seem to be able to dig up an answer in search or google.... Guess I'm not using a good keyword combo

Thanks in advance!

i have never run the pop3d. All logs are in /var/log look for it there. it depends how you set everything up and if you choose to log at all. Mail is stored in /var/mail and there is a log of it in /var/log.
