Turn off or disable dovecot
 
Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (Fedora 18 x86_64)

In working through the Virtual Users, domains w/postfix howto when I ran into a problem where I could not actually verify if pop3 is working ok.

When I try to telnet to pop3 I get a dovecot reply.

# telnet localhost pop3
Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
+OK Dovecot ready.
quit
+OK Logging out
Connection closed by foreign host.

I tried disabling it but then the telnet does not work. I also tried looking in the audit.log and messages for errors.

Can anyone give me an idea of how to fix this?

thanks
