hi my pop3 mail server is not working... everything is running but i'm not able to connect via outlook to my mail server.. the problem happened after rebooting my server all mail accounts stopped connecting in outlook. i pinged the mail hostnames for all the various accounts and they're up. i tried restarting cppop and i receive the message

Waiting to bind to port 110 (Address already in use)...

In SSH, look at what is listening on port 110 :

Code:
netstat -anp | grep 110
Chances are you will find portsentry there. In this case :

Code:
service portsentry stop
/scripts/restartsrv_cppop
service portsentry start
This should fix your issue :)

this is what i have there

[email protected] [~]# netstat -anp | grep 110
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:110 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 9735/couriertcpd
tcp 0 20440 70.84.32.235:1935 62.255.204.11:1104 ESTABLISHED 4904/fcserver
