disable pop3 ports?

I admit I don't quite understand dovecot's config yet, but this is 
driving me batty. I was looking at my server and noticed that dovecot 
was listening on the pop3 ports (110/TCP). Since I do not use pop3 at 
all, nor does anyone who has ever or ever will connect to the server, 
that seems like a needless waste. So I went through the config files and 
commented out every reference to pop3 in them. But when I restart 
dovecot, it STILL opens a listener on 110. How do I fix this? The ONLY 
external ports I want dovecot listening to are imap4 and imap4s.
