    Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (Fedora 18 x86_64)

    In working through the Virtual Users, domains w/postfix howto when I ran into a problem where I could not actually verify if pop3 is working ok.

    When I try to telnet to pop3 I get a dovecot reply.

    # telnet localhost pop3
    Connected to localhost.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    +OK Dovecot ready.
    +OK Logging out
    Connection closed by foreign host.

    I tried disabling it but then the telnet does not work. I also tried looking in the audit.log and messages for errors.

    Can anyone give me an idea of how to fix this?
