Topic: [SOLVED] How to disable pop3 services

I would like to deactivate the whole pop3 services because in don't use it.
I only use imap connection to the server. The unused pop3 services are only wasting memory on my system.

How can I disable the pop3 and the pop3 ssl service on a running iRedMail 0.7.1 environment?
I found some options in the iRedMail-0.7.1/conf/global file.

# For POP3/IMAP services.
export USE_POP3='YES'
export USE_POP3S='YES'
export USE_IMAP='YES'
export USE_IMAPS='YES'

But I don't want to reinstall iRedMail.
Which configuration file will be affected by the "global" file during the installation process?

Best regards


Re: [SOLVED] How to disable pop3 services

Don't change them in conf/global, just install iRedMail, then remove pop3 service from Dovecot config file (/etc/dovecot.conf or /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf):

# Default setting in dovecot-1.1.x, 1.2.x.
#protocols = pop3 pop3s imap imaps managesieve

# Remove pop3
protocols = imap imaps managesieve

P.S. Settings in conf/global were removed in iRedMail-0.7.3-rc2. POP3/IMAP/Managesieve will be enabled by default.


Does my reply help a little? How about buying me a cup of coffee ($5) as an encouragement?
