HUP is a signal you give to a prozess. HUP means HANGUP. It causes inetd to
reread it's config files.

To send signals to prozesses you can use kill.

kill -HUP `pidof inetd` will send the HUP signal to inetd.

Don't forget to uncomment the mistankenly commented "in.smtp" line in
/etc/inetd.conf first.

See also "man kill" and "man 7 signal"
