Aki, That's what I'm saying. The only place pop3 IS listed is in 
doveconf protocols. I'm going to try settiing the ports to 0 and see if 
that does the trick.

And for those who keep mentioning the firewall, understand that I'm 
beyond security paranoid. Simply blocking at the firewall is not enough. 
I want to ensure that NO ONE is listening on that port, even if it's 
just localhost.
