Yes I restarted the services, always do since I still use the "qmailctl"
script from my original qmail install.

I was afraid you would suggest this :( 

No I know your not bashing anything; ive heard the same before.

I had qmail setup on this box just as expressed on that site and then one
day I decided to do it the Gentoo way and should have never did it ..

So I will remove that /bin/true comment, but how deep should I go to remove
the gentoo ebuilds? Just a simple emerge -C qmail-vpopmail?

Is there nothing I can try without having to interrupt my environment just
to get pop3 to work?

What in your opinion may be some lingering bugs that you know of?

Thanks again folks, really appreciated.

did you restart the service after increasing the softlimit?

whoa.... that's looking suspiciously like gentoo's qmail ebuilds.

If this is the case, stop now before you get yourself too confused.

remove gentoo's qmail ebuilds and go to

gentoo's qmail ebuilds are absolutely horrid, and should not be used, by 
anyone.  I am a gentoo user, so don't think I'm just spouting some 
anti-gentoo propoganda.

that's not right... take that /bin/true out of there.

*sigh* this is why I hate those ebuilds.
