Disabling POP3 Support (only need SMTP)

Post by phykell » Wed Dec 21, 2005 11:39 am

Hi,

As the title states, I only want MailEnable to provide me with SMTP services. Can anyone suggest if there is any way to completely disable the POP3 functionality? I did try looking through the documentation but other than changing the POP3 port to one that would never be used, I couldn't find a suitable method. Changing the port does work of course, I'd just prefer not to have the POP3 service running at all if I can prevent it.

Thanks :)

just disable any ME service you don't need.

You mean from the Windows Administrative Tools menu?

Is there not an option under MailEnable's administration console which can disable the POP3 function?

OK, here are the MailEnable services which are currently running:

MEPOC.exe - Post Office Connector
MEPOPS.exe - POP Service
MESMTPC.exe - SMTP Connector
MELSC.exe - List Connector
MEMTA.exe - Mail Transfer Agent

Which services can I stop if I don't need POP3?
