The problem is with vserver and the way it deals for now with multiple IPs.

xinetd is doing a bind ( on port pop-3, but this end up being assign
to the first IP of the vserver.

To solve this problem (again for now, I am working on the fix), you will need
to setup several pop-3 services in /etc/xinetd.d. One for each IP you are using.

I don't think xinetd can listen on several IP for every services.

You keep the first ipop3 file in /etc/xinetd.d. This will serve the first IP. Then you
add ipop3-1 like this

# default: off
# description: The POP3 service allows remote users to access their mail \
# using an POP3 client such as Netscape Communicator, mutt, \
# or fetchmail.
service ipop3-1 {
        type = UNLISTED
        port = 110
        protocol = tcp
        bind = SECOND-IP
        socket_type = stream
        wait = no
        user = root
        server = /usr/lib/linuxconf/lib/vpop3d
        server_args = /usr/sbin/ipop3d
        log_on_success +=
        log_on_failure += USERID
        disable = no

A little annoying, but a fix is coming. I am using this exact setup on dns.solucorp.qc.ca

vserver: run general purpose virtual servers on one box, full speed!
