They should have a pop-3 one --- pop-3 is what it's been forever; pop3 is
the official IANA name for it, but that's only been in /etc/services since
netbase 3.16-1.

From /etc/services:
pop3            110/tcp         pop-3           # POP version 3
pop3            110/udp         pop-3

Note that having pop-3 after 110/tcp just means it's an alias for the port
