POP3 mail Server


I am trying to set up a POP3 mail server with Red Hat version 9. I just recently installed the system so I don't know much about linux. Can someone help?

# Common e-mail tools
sendmail - postfix - sends mail to local users (and internet when configured correctly)
fetchmail - gets mail from internet accounts (non-Hotmail type)
procmail - sorts and delivers into separate mailboxes
mutt - mail client that sucks less than all the others

Gotmail, a utility to download mail from Hotmail type accounts

when I try to start postfix in the services running menu I get a message that says,

"postfix failed. The error was: starting postfix: postalias: fatal: parameter inet_interfaces: no local interface found for (my ip address)

What does this mean?
