How does outlook download mail from sendmail?
I've set up sendmail on a redhat linux 8.0 box. Although I'm just learning the basics, I'm already able to send mail. Now here's my question that (I'm surprised) doesn't seem to be anywhere. How does ms outlook connect to sendmail to retrieve mail? So...
1. Someone sends user mail.
2. Sendmail accepts it and adds it to the user's mailbox file.
3. Outlook connects to the sendmail server and downloads the user's mail.
I don't seem to see any info regarding step number three. Any info you guys can provide on this subject would be greatly appreciated.
