Well Matt from looking at this and the fact that I also run Redhat 7.3 I see one thing wrong. Your default /etc/services file has your pop-3 as pop3. There are several ways to fix this, 1) either modify the /etc/services [bad idea], 2) Modify your run script to say pop3 [good choice], or 3) modify your run script to say 110 instead of pop-3 [best choice, unless you use a different port number]. Hope that helps some. Joe This the question I have just asked.....I have modified the script again as suggested to reference pop3 instead of pop-3. I still cannot get the qmail-pop3d daemon to stay up longer than 1 second. I need to know if 1 second is whats expected as I would not expect the pop3 daemon to stay up all the time just spawn when called. I could be wrong though. Thanks, Matt.
