Sendmail not receiving messages

Is there a way if I can see if ipop3d is running? We are able to send/receive emails internally, but it isn't receiving the messages from external. I think there is something wrong with my pop3.

When you say "internally," do you mean within your network or within the computer itself.

You can telnet to the port your pop3 is listening on. For example, if your ip address was and pop3 was listening on port 110 you would run
telnet 110
Good Luck,
