Post.Office : Installing, Upgrading, or Removing : Disabling other POP and IMAP servers back to FAQ
Question:I can see that messages are delivered to my mailboxes, however I am unable to login to POP to get the mail. I think a different pop server is running on my machine.
Answer:If you have a pop server other than Post.Office's running on your machine then you will be unable to check your mail. There are a couple of places that one could be started from. Most commonly you will need to change the disable = no line in your /etc/xinet.d/pop3d file to disable = yes . You can do this in the /etc/xinet.d/imapd file as well to turn imap off. Alternatively you can simply remove those files.

Another place that a pop server may be starting from is the /etc/inetd.conf file. Comment out any line that starts with pop or imap from this file.

After making any of these changes you should reboot your computer or do a `ps -ax |grep inetd` and then `kill - HUP ###` where ### is the pids returned by the ps command. After that you will need to restart Post.Office with `/usr/local/post.office/post.office shutdown` and restart with `/usr/local/post.office/post.office`

To determine if your Post.Office's pop server is running or not you can do `telnet mail.domain.com 110` and if the string returned says Post.Office in it then you are good to go. The same applies to IMAP but use the IMAP port of 143.
