Qpopper Monthly Help File

         M O N T H L Y   Q P O P P E R   L I S T   H E L P

This is a routine monthly reminder of how to unsubscribe or use other
list commands.

First off, when you subscribe to a mailing list, you almost always get
a first message from the list admin telling you about the mailing list,
and explaining how to unsubscribe.  It is always a good idea to keep
these messages, since you never know when you will need to unsubscribe.
This is particularly useful when you change email addresses, because it
is difficult to unsubscribe from a list after you have a different
mailing address.

Every message sent by the list includes headers that you can just click
on to subscribe, unsubscribe, get help, or see the archives (if the
list has archives).

If you have tried this method, and the mailing list software won't let
you unsubscribe, it is probably because your address has changed.  In 
this case, please send a message to 
<mailto:listmaster <at> lists.pensive.org> stating which list (or lists) 
you want to unsubscribe from, and what you think your previous address
was.  There is a human (me) who will then try to take care of your 
request, often within a few days.

The list server in use (called AutoShare), offers several options which
you can set for yourself.  These options affect how the list sends you
messages.

The available options are:

Where to place tar.gz

Hello all,
Where should one place the tar.gz file in order to unpack it?  The
instructions say that a directory is created (qpopper4.x).
Thank You.

whereever really..it's only being compiled in the directory you put it in,
not installed there.
I like to put it in /usr/src (in linux anyway)
then your tar xfz qpopper4.0.x.tar.gz will extract it into a new directory
/usr/src/qpopper4.0.x

Qpopper 4.0.4 Install on RH 7.2

Hello,

This is my first post and my first time trying to configure qpopper on
Redhat 7.2

My /etc/xinetd.d/pop3 file contains the following:

# default: off
# description: The POP3 service allows remote users to access their mail \

service pop3
{
        socket_type             = stream
        protocal                = tcp
        wait                    = no
        user                    = root
        server                  = /usr/sbin/popper
        server_args             = qpopper -s
        port                    = 110
}

In /etc/hosts.allow I have

popper: ALL

Port 110 is setup in /etc/services as

pop3            110/tcp         pop-3           # POP version 3
pop3            110/udp         pop-3

HELP!!!!

Hmmm....
Is there someone out there?
I've posted the following few days ago but no answer 'til now. Maybe is out the scope of the list? Is it too much "O.S. dependent"?
Please, help me 'cause is very important for me to change the pop daemon I'm using on this server.
TIA

Greetings
I'm a newbie to qpopper and then, maybe, my question is already in the dust from eras....but, anyway...
I'm trying to compile the Qpopper 4.0.4 on my good old Digital Alpha Server 1000/4 266 w/ DEC Unix 4.0F (and patches ;-) ), using gcc 2.7.2.
The "configure" process is gone well and here you can take a look to my parameters:
# ./configure --disable-update-abort --enable-apop --enable-bulletins --enable-group-bulls --enable-nonauth-file=/etc/pop-nonauth
--enable-poppassd --enable-popuid=pop --enable-server-mode --disable-specialauth
As you can see, my intention is to use the APOP authentication alghoritm.
But the "make" phase let me out of any control with the following error message, compiling popauth:
gcc -c -I.. -I.. -I. -I../mmangle -I../common -O2 -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -DOSF1 -DUNIX popauth.c -o popauth.o
popauth.c:130: conflicting types for `srandom'
/usr/local/lib/gcc-lib/alpha-dec-osf4.0/2.7.2/include/stdlib.h:321: previous declaration of `srandom'
*** Exit 1
Gosh!!! Have you, qpopper gurus, any idea to resolve my problem?
TIA

Re: Qpopper 4.0.4 Install on RH 7.2

Matthew,
I'm exactly at the same spot you are with the exception of RH7.3 on this
end.
I'm trying to replace a old server (RH7.2 + qpopper) but I can seem to be
able to duplicate my previous work.
Hope you get the answer you need, as it will probably answer mine!

Re: Qpopper 4.0.4 Install on RH 7.2


The problem for me was -s instead of -S. -s is standalone.

However now I am getting another problem thats sendmail related.

Server Response 550 5.7.1 Relaying denied IP name lookup failed..

That's your mailer not allowing relaying.  Has nothing to do with Qpopper.
