The pop daemon should be up all the time.

You may want to check your qmailctl script for any possible errors in
calling the pop3 daemon.  Also, a few times I've had problems with
different text editors leaving some trash characters in the script when
I'v entered tabs of spaces.  That especially was a problem when I used
gedit (I run redhat too)

hope that helps some

good luck


I'll check the qmailctl script - although I am quite sure it is working well
as the PID for pop3d keeps changing.

My text editor should be fine as it was vi, and I have checked it and it
looks ok. Good advice though. Any other options / suggestions ??
