I've removed advertising from most of this site and will eventually clean up the few pages where it remains.

While not terribly expensive to maintain, this does cost me something. If I don't get enough donations to cover that expense, I will be shutting the site down in early 2020.

If you found something useful today, please consider a small donation.

There is lots of Linux, Mac OS X and general Unix info elsewhere on this site: Search this site is the best way to find anything.

How do I test a popd connection?


telnet popserver 110
-server will (or should) respond indicating that it is ready
user username
- server will tell you that a password is required
pass usernames_password
- server will tell you how many messages username has
list
- server will show you size of each message
retr 1
- first message will be displayed
quit
 

If the server does not respond, then pop is not enabled. Find it in /etc/inetd.conf, uncomment it, and then send a kill -1 to the inet daemon:

kill -1 `cat /etc/inetd.pid`
