    Hmm...........
    Did you set permissions accordingly when complete?

    /scripts/mailperm &

    Might want to tail the maillog (/var/log/maillog), if you want an exact error on why the spool file is being ignored or rejected.
    (tail it while someone is connecting)

    or test it yourself with a pop3 login (telnet localhost 110)
