Hello all.

I'm sorry if this sounds too stupid or basic.

I moved from 4.3 to latest version and it is working fine. On $.x I 
used to have inedt active since services are basic. On new system 
inedt did not active service immediately (not here at least) so I 
enable the service like "ftpd" on rc.conf

POP3. I remember I read in the list that inetd is not so secure (am I 
wrong?) and that if possible should not be used but since I need 
services up I used that way. Now before studying what's the best way 
to do things I need to have a pop3 deamon running. I installed from 
ports popper but and qpopper but it does not work. What's the daemon 
for popper ? It will worlk if I enable it in rc.conf.?

Inetdd. I want to learn all teh new features (left the path more than 
a year) so I do not want that you solve my problem, but if you can 
point me to where and what study to learn the changes done and the 
best way to have secure and working systems I would apreciate it. I 
am reading Handbook now.

On Handbook. Is a PDF copy available?. Believe it or not sometime I 
can find access to the internet and I would like to be stuyding on 
those times also.

Thanks in advance.
