Qpopper v4.0.8

I was running an older version of Qpopper on my mailserver and had NO 
problems whatsoever.  Everything was going great.  However, I just recently 
upgraded to Qpopper v4.0.8 and now all of a sudden I can't access my mail 
via POP3.  

I'm running Qpopper via INETd and my /etc/inetd.conf file looks like this....

pop3    stream  tcp     nowait  root    /usr/local/libexec/qpopper qpopper -
s -T 600

However, when I try telnetting to localhost 110, I get the 
dreaded, "CONNECTION CLOSED BY FOREIGN HOST" message.  NETSTAT shows that 
Qpopper is listening on Port 110/TCP so I don't know what's wrong.  
My /etc/hosts.allow file is set to allow ALL so that shouldn't be an issue.

I even executed KILLALL -HUP inetd numerous times and still no go.

I've poured through the Qpopper FAQs and documentation to see if I'm doing 
anything wrong, or missing something, but I just can't seem to pinpoint it.  

Any suggestions or details as to what I might be missing???

Any help is much appreciated.
