Turning on POP3 & other services

I have sendmail working but couldn't connect to a mailbox using OE. Did some looking around and sure enough we weren't listening on port 110 - the POP3 port. More research and I found that I needed to edit etc/inetd.conf in order to have inetd start the pop3 service. While I was there I started imap2 and swat (for samba admin).

After saving the file I ran '/etc/rc.d/rc.inetd restart' to restart the daemon.


PS - what's left?
- Mail testing
- Mail migration for Priscilla & Caolinn
- Mailman install & migration
