On closer inspection of /var/log/messages I found the following
Sep 28 13:45:38 Linux ipop3d: Login failure user=bernie
Sep 28 13:45:41 Linux ipop3d: No such file or directory
while reading line user=bernie host=qc [199.xxx.xxx.xxx]
Sep 28 13:48:24 Linux inetd: pop-3/tcp server failing
(looping), service terminated
User "bernie" was added in the past week but for some reason the
command did not add /home/bernie. When I added /home/bernie and
it worked fine.
Thanks for all the suggestions.
