pop3


I'm just wondering what is the name of the default pop3 server in red hat 8.0? I'm trying to configure the accounts but I don't know what it's called. I think it's postfix but I just want to make sure. I can telnet it no problem and all, but it just does not accept any users so I assume I need to edit a configuration file or use webmin to make accounts.

Thanks!

The pop3 server is provided from your ISP.
You will use the same one in Linux as you did under Windows

How would you know, did you trace my IP to my isp or something? lol

My isp runs Qpopper (version 4.0.5) according to telnet, and I think their server is windows, while mine is linux, so what I want to know is what is the name of the server so I can know what to look for when configurating it. The root account has a bunch of emails and I want to configure it as a pop3 account so I can connect to it with my mail client, but I don't know where to start.

Oh and when I telnet my server I get this: +OK POP3 [192.168.1.102] v2001.78rh server ready

So not sure why it's called because it does not say.

You are right. I have no idea what I am talking about.
Sorry
Guess you'll have to post again.

lol it's ok. At least you tried to help. I always figured pop3 and smtp was very simple but it seems to be hard to find any type of info. My server is somewhat setup in a good way and if it was not for webmin I would of never gotten where I am now.

I still want to figure out how to make root (or any other user) a pop3 account and also how to get fetchmail to only fetchmail when I check mail as right now it's checking every 15 minutes, wasting lot of bandwidth for nothing.
