[NBLUG/talk] Moving Mail services from one server to another

Personally, I use Courier for both IMAP and POP3.  It works and fairly
reliably, though I mostly use the IMAP functionality.

Last I checked, sendmail didn't have a POP3 component, but I ditched
sendmail about six years ago.

Yes indeed there are multiple IPs, about 30 to be exact. I've moved over
most of the other services, but mail is a lower priority move and I
would like it to go smooth. It sounds like this should go well in the
manner that's been described here. I'll probably be doing just that in a
week or two.

Anybody know what the normal Mandrivia way to handle pop3 is? Qpoper
seems to be recommended. Sendmail was suggested, but that confused me as
I thought sendmail was just for receiving mail, not serving it up in a
pop3 manner.
