POP3 User ID Logging

    I am attempting to get POP3 user ID logging information. For troubleshooting purposes I need to know who is logging in and retrieving email.

    I am running the following under Fedora C2:
    psa 7.5.4-fc2
    courier-imap 3.0.8-fc2
    I am running the courier POP3 sever.
    I found a post somewhere that basically said to modify the following file:

    The line edit is as follows:

    On a system not running the POP3 server under xinetd the messages will appear in the maillog (/usr/local/psa/var/log/maillog). See sample below:

    Jul 9 12:52:33 servername pop3d: Connection, ip=[]
    Jul 9 12:52:33 hs1 pop3d: LOGIN: DEBUG: ip=[], command=USER
    Jul 9 12:52:33 hs1 pop3d: LOGIN: DEBUG: ip=[], command=PASS
    Jul 9 12:52:33 hs1 pop3d: LOGIN: DEBUG: ip=[], username=test1
    Jul 9 12:52:33 hs1 pop3d: auth_psa: starting client module
    Jul 9 12:52:34 hs1 pop3d: IMAP connect from @ []DEBUG: auth_psa: ACCEPT, username test1
    Jul 9 12:52:34 hs1 pop3d: LOGIN, user=test1, ip=[]

    On a system running the POP3 sever under xinetd I do not get the same results. The messages and information does not change to reflect the debug mode in the configuration file.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Try changing the value to 2. The same would apply for the imapd config file as well.

    I have the same outcome on the system running the xinetd sever when I change the debug mode to 2.
