Re: [SLE] SuSE7.3 Postfix (pop) connection refused - solved (I hope)

IIRC, inetd was disabled by default for security reasons (open servers
that people did not know they were running). Postfix runs just fine
without a POP server (all delivery to the user's home directory). If
you want one, install it. There are many fine POP and IMAP servers.

I had the same problem with Postfix installed on a PPP G3 with SuSE7.3PPC

Thus it seems to be a particular problem of SuSE7.3

Note that postfix doesn't handle pop. You must install something like
qpopper. Also, while you edited inetd.conf, make sure that inetd is
actually running (no I'm not trying to be funny, that actually happened to
me once and I have the dent in the wall to prove it :)


I had to do many things

1) launch inetd (you were right)
2) install qpopper (was not installed with package Postfix ????)

Thus there is something missing in the installation of SuSE 7.3 (that was not
missing in SuSE 7.2).
