    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

    root@nmx [~]# 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
    tcp 0 0 70.84.32.170:80 24.44.69.110:2248 FIN_WAIT2 -

    should i still run the portsentry command?
