sendmail, procmail, fetchmail

Hi guys,

I just finished my Linux Certification (LPIC Level1), but I'm still not familiar wirth linux ;-)

Right, I have the following problem:

I installed and configured sendmail, procmail and fetchmail. Everything works fine. I can send mails via the bash, I can send mails using my windows-machine and using outlook.

Fetchmail can receive mails from providers pop3-server and puts them in the mail spool ... still okay ;-)

But now the problem, how can I receive my mails from my local pop3 server?
How do I have to configure sendmail an fetchmail, so that they offer a pop3-account to log in?

I searched this forum and I searched the newsgroups, but I can't find a solution.

The only thing I always hear: Configure your MUA to connect POP3 to your provider ... but this can't be the solution, can it?

I forgot, I'm using Suse 8.2 ....

thx in @vance

Sorry for my bad english ... I'm still working on it ;-)
