Good point.  I'll investigate the possibility of changing this and
update soon...

Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2002-12-14 05:02:15 UTC
The service names are named based on the names of the executables for
consistency.  After discussing this with our development team, we have
decided that the current way of naming the service is correct.

Ok, I understand your position. I posted the bug because I found many users not
knowing howto to enable the pop3 service because thay started searching at the
letter "P", from Pop3, in ntsysv.
Anyway, thanks for the support. I already know that ipop3 is a pop3 service,
just wanted to help newies.
