netstat -nao | findstr ":25\> :110\>"

It's far from obvious from the question but as it's running hMailServer it must be a Windows machine. – John Gardeniers Sep 23 '11 at 8:28
Oh, sorry. I've converted to Windows syntax. – quanta Sep 23 '11 at 8:52

From a command prompt, type netstat -anb

This will show you all the ports open on your machine, along with the PID (process id) that has them open.

Look for port 25 and 110 and the PID. Then open Task Manager and find the PID, and you'll find the process name that has them open.
