Yes I up updated recently and it has started before the update.

vi /etc/xinetd.d/vm-pop3d


# default: off
# description: The POP3 service allows remote users to access their mail \
# using an POP3 client such as Netscape Communicator, mutt, \
# or fetchmail.
service pop3
{
disable = no
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = root
server_args = -i -t 600
server = /usr/sbin/vm-pop3d
log_on_success += USERID
log_on_failure += USERID
}
