Iain: Yes, the POP server has been replaced (the IP has been migrated to a different box). That new box has the same version of dovecot running on it.

comment process works under strace but not normally
POP server happens to have been upgraded, but it's the same dovecot version, so that hasn't changed fundamentally. The perl script is single threaded only. As far as I can see from watching the strace, it's a dead simple POP transaction - user, pass, list, retr, quit. It doesn't assume success as far as I can see; it looks to be waiting for server responses (+OK etc) after each command (it's a definite write, read cycle).

When I do "kill -CONT cat popdmn.pid", it unfreezes. I've never seen that before, what's happening under the hood here? Also, thanks :)

comment User permissions for both apache and local user
You have to be more specific. So you want user1 to be able to read & write folders and files under /home/user1/public_html/ - what permissions do you want Apache to have? read & write as well? (That's a bit of a security hole; better to make only the files/folders apache-writable that need to be, no more.)
