xinetd.d - qpoper -pop3 not found - Please Help

Greetings all. Thanks inadvance as im a newbie.
First things first. im running Mandrake 10.1 official

I installed sendmail =sendmail-8.13.1-1mdk and compiled qpopper as best as i could. when popper ran it did a whole lot of funky stuff that i can only assume worked as at the end it didnt have any errors. I am recieving email locally (on the server) because the test account that i set up is recieving email when i use mikes script from a webpage that i loaded.

I noticed that there is no entry for pop3 in the xinetd.d folder as i thought it might. i found this config on a box that i set up years ago in its inetd.d directory called pop3 that is working. It is using an older version of qpopper.

service pop3
disable = no
socket_type = stream
protocol = tcp
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/local/sbin/popper
server_args = qpopper -s
port = 110

All other threads that i have read dont really cover this new version of qpopper. On both old (RedHat 7.3) and new (mandrake 10.1) when i do a rpm - q qpopper = package qpopper is not installed

Can some one give me some direction as to what i should check for. I have been using both command line and webadmin to look at both the redhat and the mandrake boxes and they both appear to be the same except for qpopper. im stummped.


QPOPPER is working. I found this excellant article that describes for a newbie what needs to be done.

My problem know as i know it is that my server cant/doesnt know what to do when it needs to send and email.
