I've been running Cyrus IMAP for quite a while and have decided to add
POP3 services as well. I uncommented the line in /etc/cyrus.conf
pop3 cmd="pop3d" listen="pop3" prefork=0
and /etc/imapd.conf includes the following:
I HUPed the cyrus master process and got the following error:
master: unable to create pop3 listener socket: Permission
The permissions on the /var/imap/socket directory appear to be
drwxr-xr-x 8 cyrusimap mail

The auth methods, yes. In my cases,
But, by contrast, when *disabling* pop the file does contain
You might try
(sudo) serveradmin stop mail
# wait 15 seconds
(sudo) serveradmin start mail
which should cleanly shut down and then startup all the "email"
Once you get that working, maybe think about moving away (quickly)
from clear auth, a little ugly - how about apop at the very very least.
Depending on the number of clients, even a self-signed ssl-cert is
easy to implement.
Do not post admin requests to the list. They will be ignored.
