Can you give me any hints on how to view packets coming from tpop3d?

the following produces no output, which indicates it's not even getting 
to the point of connecting.

# /usr/local/sbin/tcpdump -vv host and tcp dst port 389

btw, both openldap and tpop3d are on the same box.

anything else I could try out?
