man qpopper says:-
You can confirm that the POP server is running on Unix by telneting
port 110 (or 109 if you set it up that way). For example:
%telnet pop.qualcomm.com 110

Thanks, but this doesn't work. I.e. pointing the remote client at
"kimber" (or the equivalent) doesn't allow the remote pc to retrieve mail.
From Outlook, I get:-
Connection was unexpectedly terminated by the server. Yet I can happily
ftp from that machine using the same address.
