hmmm. I actually replied to your original post (if you use a "thread
aware" mailer, you'll see that easily). BTW, I also read your other
posts (so if I missed something, it's not because I didn't read, but
maybe because I'm too old:).

my meaning was that: you'll get better help here if you concentrate on
smtp related issues. if you say you have a POP issue, we'll simply wait
until you fix it. compared to SMTP, POP(3) is a trivial protocol. As
long as you have problems with POP(3) or IMAP, focus on that. SMTP is a
harder beast.

If it's a 110 port issue, then it's not postfix related. which is what I
tried to say. obviously, I wasn't clear enough. sorry and good luck...
