Re: newbie postfix/mta question

I have set up postfix on a machine to send/receive mail. Normal
install and seems fine EXCEPT that I don't think that port 110 is open
for POPing. I can send mail fine but I can't get into the machine to
download mail. I can't figure out what the problem is. I cannot
telnet into the machine on port 110.
Can anyone clue me in to where I can start looking for the problem?
Postfix is an smtp server which sends and receives mail on port 25. If
you want to retreive mail from your Postfix box you first need to
install (or activate) a POP3 server daemon and _then_ point a POP3
capable client at it (port 110). I don't know about debian, but
slackware installs POPa3d for this purpose. Google "debian POP3" and
you'll find something you can apt-get, or perhaps that's already installed.
