I want to download the rpm for the RedHat 5.0 server for the
POP3 daemon. Where is it available?

I believe the imap pop server is included with RedHat, but I'm not sure. You can check that by telnetting to your server, telnet <server> 110. If it includes pop3d, you can get that at sunsite.

A binary is available at:
ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/redhat-5.0/updates/i386/imap-4.1.final-1.i386.rpm

The source:
ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/redhat-5.0/updates/SRPMS/imap-4.1.final-1.src.rpm

A better solution is to use Qualcomm's qpopper freeware POP3 server. It is available at ftp.qualcomm.com/eudora/servers/unix/popper.

RedHat puts all it's inetd daemons such as popper in /usr/sbin. My inetd.conf reads to add qpopper into that is:

pop-2   stream  tcp     nowait  root    /usr/sbin/tcpd    (continued) in.qpopper -s
pop-3   stream  tcp     nowait  root    /usr/sbin/tcpd  (continued)in.qpopper -s
imap    stream  tcp     nowait  root    /usr/sbin/tcpd  imapd

Enjoy
