OK just to compicate matters -- how do I get pop3s??
there is no pop3s in libexec.. do I need to recompile?
Sorry to be so ignorant on this.

PS I did try a telnet which showed the popserver ready -

I use qpopper which is in /usr/ports/mail/qpopper. You shouldn't use inet anymore, it is a security hole. Instead run the daemons you need at bootup. qpopper adds an rc script to /usr/local/etc/rc.d
