Angry Sendmail + Evolution problem

So i've setup sendmail as my mail server on my linux box (redhat 9). I can send mail just fine, but I cant seem to recieve any mail.

How should my Evolution be set up in order to recieve mail?

What should my server type be?
Right now i have it set to "Standard mBox spool or directory" and the spool directory is /var/mail/comment, but it still doesn't seem to work.

Im trying to get the most basic setup to send and recieve mail.

Any suggestioins? Ideas?

What or how do you have sendmail setup? Are you setting up a domain name and are you using pop3 or imap to get your mail? What did you put in your incoming server name?

More details on your setup and you should get faster replies and responses to you questions.
