    POP is your POP mail service.

    Log into WHM and restart them. If the problem persists, contact your hosting provider.:)

    Can you please specify what type of email permission do you face.

    Are all of your services functional though?
    It might just be 'chkservd' that needs restarted. Chkservd is responsible for monitoring the services and ensuring they're up and functional.

    Try the following via shell:
    service chkservd restart:)

    I think I am having similar issues. I have 2 cpanel servers version 11.24+ and am using Dovecot instead of Courier.

    Daily i get multiple pop failed notices saying they are unable to connect to port 110.

    Its been consistently several times a day from both servers.

    Any ideas what to look for and resolve this issue? I have tried restarting pop from WHM as well as chkservd.

    Thanks!
    -John

    What does the error log say.

    Services might get restarted when server load is high.

    Check the error logs for more details.

    I am getting this:

    Appears in my case at least that my VPS provider updated the clock and the VPS was ahead - only having this issue so far in 1 place, but not a cPanel issue - so not sure if that helps, but if nothing else and it's your own hardware as root setup a cron maybe to do:

    rdate -s rdate.cpanel.net

    On a semi-regular basis.
