Configure POP3 with Sendmail


I have been trying to connect to my mail server (which is actually my own server at home) Everytime i try to fetch mail from there i get connection refused: socket closed or something like that..
How can I configure sendmail to allow pop3 retrievals?

pop3 has nothing whatsoever to do with sendmail. sendmail is an SMTP server and nothing else. make sure you have a pop3 server installed.
