    On my ISPCONFIG screen, after login it states that the pop3-server is offline.
    The services ipop3 and pop3s are not working, have i completely missed something, thanks in advance....

    Please rerun these steps:

    chkconfig ipop3 on
    chkconfig pop3s on
    /etc/init.d/xinetd restart
    If you get errors, post them here.

    If this does not solve your problem, run this command and post the output here:
    netstat -tap | grep pop

    i got the same problem with Suse 10 and here are the messages for it...

    test:~ # chkconfig ipop3 on
    ipop3: unknown service
    test:~ # chkconfig pop3s on
    pop3s: unknown service
    test:~ # /etc/init.d/xinetd restart
    Shutting down xinetd: done
    Starting INET services. (xinetd) failed

    any ideas if i run this one netstat -tap | grep pop it does not give me anything in return maybe wrong for my type of linux....

    Did You follow the SuSE 10.0 Perfect Setup ( http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_suse_10.0 )?
    Then you have Courier-IMAP/-POP3 installed, not ipop3d. You should find the appropriate init scripts in /etc/init.d.

    If there's no Courier-IMAP/-POP3 installed, run
    yast -i courier-imap fam-server courier-authlib expect tcl
    chkconfig --add fam
