Hello all,

I have a FC2 machine and just compiled imap-uw
on it without SSL support:
make lrh SSLTYPE=none

I then bring up pop3 and imap with these in /etc/xinet.d

service imap
{
       socket_type             = stream
       wait                    = no
       user                    = root
       server                  = /usr/sbin/imapd
       log_on_success  += HOST DURATION
       log_on_failure  += HOST
       disable                 = no
}

service pop3
{
       socket_type             = stream
       wait                    = no
       user                    = root
       server                  = /usr/sbin/ipop3d
       log_on_success  += HOST DURATION
       log_on_failure  += HOST
       disable                 = no
}

They seem to be up properly:

[root at 207-234-129-112 xinetd.d]# netstat -tnap

But when I try and connect to the port via telnet, I get the following:

sevans at linux1:~/bin/serverapps$ telnet 207.234.129.112 110
Trying 207.234.129.112...

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
