Hello you can easily google for it.

You can also try following this howto:

Kind Regards,

One comes with fedora. You have to install the imap package. If it is already installed there will be a file in /etc/xinetd.d/ipop3 (or a similar name). Edit the file and change "disable = yes" to "disable = no" and run "service xinetd restart". If the the file isnt there install the imap rpm from your installation cdroms and go through the editing steps above.

"A file in" should be /etc/xinetd.d/ - the file itself is called ipop3 (or similar)
