I am not sure if I understand your problem, but I do have an idea. Are you
using tcpd wrappers for pop3 and only allowing hosts within your domain?
Or maybe you are using the tcpd /etc/hosts.deny PARANOID wildcard? I am
not sure why your host name is not resolving but maybe this is why your
pop3 is not working.
