    me and a mate trying to set up emails we have accounts setup there
    accepting mail , but useing my office outlook it says this error

    Task mail - Receiving reported error (0x8004210 : Outlook is unable
    to conect to your incomming (pop3) email server, if you continue to
    receive this message,contact your server administrator or internet service
    provider (ISP)

    i have set my
    incomeing mail server as (pop3) 192.168.1.x and my outgoing mail server (SMTP) 192.168.1.x

    I'm pretty sure that sendmail is only for sending and not receiving (i.e.-pop3).

    Yeh sendmail is only a MTA you need to get a pop3 daemon i use popa3d which you can download from openwall.
