mail & sendmail problems

Hi there. I want to ask if if want to transfer emais from one machine to another. It is required that both machines should run sendmail or not? Do u know if only a machine needs to be a sendmail server and has his DNS MX record correctly configured? Any suggestion?

What are the differences between imap and pop3? Which is the easiest configured? What these programs provides?

Thx gyus...have a nice day

i cant speak for IMAP because i dont use it but using POP your email client will store the messages, not sendmail.

IMAP is where the messages are stored on a central server where's POP downloads them to an email client then their removed from the mail server...
