Can't receive mails from localhost using MozillaMail

Hi there

I want to test sending/receiving mails to/from the localhost( using Mozilla mail. I am able to send mails successfully.

But I have not been able to receive any mail so far. Every time I try 'Get Msgs', I get the following message.

Could not connect to server localhost; the connection was refused.

I'm using Linux-Slackware10.2 and sendmail as MTA. And yes, I am able to send and receive mails using mailx.

Please giude me where is the problem with Mozilla mail.
