Setup vm-pop3d to run through xinetd

If the vm-pop3d daemon is not acting correctly and you are not able to consistently make a connection to 110, you might want to try running it through xinetd.

1) turn of DA checking for the program:
set: vm-pop3d=OFF

2) turn off the boot script:

chkconfig vm-pop3d off

3) setup xinet.d
edit /etc/xinetd.d/pop3 and add:

# default: on
# description: pop3
service pop3
  log_on_success += DURATION USERID
  log_on_failure += USERID
  port = 110
  socket_type = stream
  user = root
  server = /usr/sbin/vm-pop3d
  server_args = -t 600
  wait = no
  nice = 10

4) restart xinetd:

/sbin/service vm-pop3d stop       #(if its running)
/sbin/service xinetd restart
