Further to my last on popper/xinetd not working from another client on the
same subnet, I rebuilt qpopper with debugging support. Here's an extract
from sys.log when the attempt to connect from another client occurs:

Apr 26 13:50:08 wiggle_butt xinetd[16303]: Reading included configuration

This looks like things are starting up okay but then die.

Here is my xinetd.conf file:

defaults
{
      instances       = 60
      log_type        = SYSLOG daemon
      log_on_success  = HOST PID USERID
      log_on_failure  = HOST USERID
      only_from       = localhost 192.168.1.0/24
#      cps             = 25 30
}

Here is xinetd.d/pop3:

service pop3
{
    port            = 110
    socket_type     = stream
    protocol        = tcp
    wait            = no
    user            = root
#    listen         = 192.168.1.101
    server          = /usr/sbin/popper
    server_args     = -d
}
