it actually says its "offline" not "stopped". my mistake
in my installation of ISPConfig 2.1.1 (i know not the latest) the pop3 service doesnt seem to be running. im using postfix following EXACTLY how the Suse 10.0 Perfect Install guide says.
SOmeone let me know how to get the pop3 service running. Obviosuly this is causeing errors in basicly everything that has to do with mail. (i.e. Webmail, which i just installed) Webmail gives me a php "connection refused on localhost:110" or something like that which means the pop3 service isnt running. also ISPConfig says its "offline"
by the way, falko is the man and my new idol
