Looks OK. Ah, I think I see what your problem is. popa3d is a daemon, not a "user program" to be run whenever you want POP3 services. Please read the setup/install notes in the distribution. > However, if I log on to Linux as JRM and try to execute popa3d it says > "command not found", even if I cd to /usr/sbin where the executable is. > So I suspect there is a permissions problem. I have changed the > permissions for popa3d in /usr/sbin to "everybody can execute" it still > won't execute it for anybody except root. popa3d isn't designed to be run by users, but rather via either an inetd/xinetd issued runtime, *OR* run as a persistent standalone daemon out of /etc/rc.d/* If your server's anticipated pop3 load is low, I'd just add (or replace) whatever entry you have in /etc/inetd.conf (or /etc/xinet.d/*) to run popa3d on the POP3 port. > Is there a config file for popa3d somewhere? No, its configuration is compiled into the daemon. It's lean-and-mean. =R=
