I have a walkthrough to help setup Sendmail on Slackware 9.1.  I have set it up on RedHat also, just a little bit different.

It's a normal user account.

To add user, type:

useradd username

To set password, type:
passwd username

I have try the method mentioned above. But it does not work. When I connected via Mozilla Mail I get the message "connection to 192.x.x.x refused". Do I need to configure the POP3 port ?

U can only choose POP3 or IMAP, therefore u should activate one of them.

Here, yes, POP3 port
