About Qpopper - FreeBSD

Hi All, I installed qpopper with pkg_add, uncomment the following line in /etc/inetd.conf, then restart inetd pop3 stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/libexec/qpopper popper but I can't connect to the pop3 server with Outlook Express, got a error message like "Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection". I did exactly the same thing on another server before, it worked immediately, any possible reasons? Thanks! Here is the sockstat output: # sockstat | grep 110 root inetd 32385 4 tcp4 *:110 *:* Kevin Pang...

    Hi All,

    I installed qpopper with pkg_add, uncomment the following line in
    /etc/inetd.conf, then restart inetd
    pop3 stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/libexec/qpopper popper

    but I can't connect to the pop3 server with Outlook Express, got a error
    message like "Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection". I did
    exactly the same thing on another server before, it worked immediately, any
    possible reasons? Thanks!

    Here is the sockstat output:
    # sockstat | grep 110
    root inetd 32385 4 tcp4 *:110 *:*

    Thanks for your help, Kris. I always forgot to check the logs :-(.

    The log says:
    inetd[32476]: cannot execute /usr/local/libexec/popper: No such file or
    directory

    But I checked the file, it does exist. I can execute it manually, got error
    message, I think it's because inetd used the socket.

    A little more info, I killed inetd and tried to run qpopper manually again,
    still the same error message:
    qpopper[32535]: Unable to obtain socket and address of client: Socket
    operation on non-socket (38)

    qpopper, not popper

    Try a better mail client that complies with PGP standards ;-)

    Wow, I'm so silly, thanks a lot, Kris! It works now. I'm just wondering how
    I noticed this last time and why they put such a default line in it, I would
    rather add it myself :-).
