Sometimes while you are working with the Admin Console, you can write a wrong settings under the POP3 Settings in the Server tab:


If you set one of this fields wrong, the Mailbox Service will not start anymore.


To fix this issue, you need to reset to the default values: As Zimbra user

zmprov -l ms `zmhostname` 
zimbraPop3AdvertisedName "" 
zmprov -l ms `zmhostname` 
zimbraPop3BindAddress "" 
zmmailboxdctl stop 
zmmailboxdctl start
