Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake host is missing one or more security-related

Description :

Due to the configuration of the xinetd configuration files included
in the imap package, initial connections to the IMAP and/or POP3
services would have a substantial delay due to xinetd attempting to
perform ident lookups.

This update has corrected xinetd configuration files that remove the
ident lookup support, preventing such delays.
