    On Slackware pop3 and imap2 are started from inetd. So uncomment the lines in /etc/inetd.conf and restart inetd (/etc/rc.d/rc.inetd restart ) .

    If your pop3 is very slow you should disable startup from inetd and start it as a standalone daemon. To do that comment the entry in inetd.conf again , restart inetd and start popa3d using this command: /usr/sbin/popa3d -D
    .
    I\'m so tired .....
