    Which distribution do you use? Did you follow any of the "Perfect Setup" tutorials?

    I did not use any of the perfect setup. I had just installed the server and when I installed it I ment it to be a webhosting server so I installed dns apache mysql php post fix and so on. I might not have installed the pop3 if so how do I go about solving this thanks. I am useing Fedora core 4. the install went really smooth with no errors so I tought everything was working I had to start up apache on my own as I saw that as not running in the ispconfig site but pop3 still shows as not running.

    Go to the directory:


    There you will find several scripts to start and stop services. Search for scripts with "pop" or "imap" in the name and start them with:

    ./name-of-the-script start

    If you dont have these scripts, you can try to restart the xinetd daemon:

    /etc/init.d/xinetd restart

    Starting services

    To start a service manually, type:
    service <servicename> start

    To get a list of services type:
    chkconfig --list

    This will also tell you if/when each service gets started at boot time.

    To figure out how turn on a service at boot time, type:
    man chkconfig

    I was not able to get it running with out the yum update. It did not slow down my system much when I did the update I did it all remotely. if its a server that is live I would just do the update and start mysqld and the mail server right when its done. Sorry i dont have any more advise but from what I have found everyone that installed this pop3 server needed to do the update.
