Until I saw your post, I didn't even know that Inn existed. I do not have
it installed on my system. I did an "apt-cache search inn", with these
inn - News transport system `InterNetNews' by the ISC and Rich Salz
inn-dev - The libinn.a library and manpages.
inn2 - News transport system `InterNetNews' by the ISC and Rich Salz
inn2-dev - The libinn.a library and manpages.
inn2-inews - NNTP client news injector, from InterNetNews (INN)
Seems to me that if you aren't using Inn, you could just uninstall it. That
shouldn't break anything (except Inn itself).
