You question is quite clear unless your already using the port or
administratively disabled the port by blocking it with ipfilter or such
there is no real way of shutting down a port. 
Try the following 
perl -p -i.bak -e 's/^#pop3/pop3/' /etc/services 
restart inetd 
Try using netstat to verify the pop3 service is listening 
$ netstat -a| grep pop
tcp4       0      0  *.pop3                 *.*                    LISTEN
as this point you should be able to connect to your pop server internally. 
If this isnt working it might be a firewall or such out of your control try
contacting your network administrator for more assistance.
