Hello Sirs,
we do a Standard Red-Hat6.2 Server Installation
and activated pop3i via linuxconf. 

If we tried to get mail from server, using MS-Outlook or MS-Outlook-Express
we get an error message: Server closed the connection!

we see the pop3i Daemon starting, but no transport will occure!
- whats the problem!!

we need very urgent a solution!
Thanks for soon help

I dont think this has anything to do with procmail.
Please provide more details in this matter, espcially if you have your Outlook clients configured to do SSL connections on
pop3. (frequently a default setting in Outlook)
And check /var/log/maillog and /var/log/messages for any errors.

Viel Glueck.

No response from customer, unable to duplicate error in PINSTRIPE.

We have exactly the same problem. After activting the pop3 service with 
linuxconf, the service can not be accessed by using telnet on port 110. So it 
has probably nothing to do with procmail or Outlook. I do not know whether 
there should be a program named ipop3d in /usr/sbin or not, but there is no 
such a program indeed.
