what exactly are you trying to get working? Sendmail simply is the MTA that recieves mail to spool into a particular directory. POP or IMAP are used to retrieve the mail from the spooled directory.

Think of it like this, Sendmail is like the post office, it sends and recieves mail. Think of IMAP as if it were your postal worker, they then deliver your mail to you locally. So it's not really a matter of getting IMAP working with Sendmail, it just needs to know where to get the mail that is spooled up waiting to be delivered.

Is just a regular user on the system itself using passwd and shadow files? If so, can you login directly to the machine itself? If so, it's a configuration error on your email client.
