Rich, it sounds like qpopper isn't running or you've got some iptables
blocking the conection.

First check if salmo is listening for pop on tcp port 110.

brian at ibook:~$ netstat -ln | grep 110
tcp        0      0   *               LISTEN     

if its there then you got an iptables problem.
if not then check /etc/inetd.conf (or xinetd) and make sure qpopper
isnt commented out.

pop-3           stream  tcp     nowait  root    /usr/sbin/tcpd 
/usr/sbin/in.qpopper -f /etc/qpopper.conf

good luck,
