Default POP3 offline


I have recently first started using ISPConfig and loving it so far. Installation went smooth and a great alternative to bloated Plesk. However, I cannot seem to get one thing down.

I am using Dovecot as IMAP server and have it configured to only allow IMAPS on port 993. I assume because the regular POP3 port isn't open, ISPConfig assumes the service is down while it is working perfectly.

Is there any switch in the config I can flip and have ISPConfig check for the POP3 service on a different port?

This is not configurable. But as a workaorond you can enable pop3 again so that ispconfig can check the service and then just close the pop3 port in the firewall.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.
