please do not make posts such as this, they can only reduce the likelihood of a useful reply. Also, your thread is utterly nothing to do with this post, please refrain in future and i'm sure we'll all get along fine, thanks.
as the the actual question, it does make sense to not be able to log in as root, but i don't know of anything set in stone. what do the logs for the pop server (and what is this meant to have to do with sendmail? afaik ths is utterly unrelated to sendmail) i don' know if your pop will have it's own log file, if not just check /var/log/messages and such like. if there is something in place it may well also be somethign inside pam if it's not daemon specific.
