  Configuring sendmail on Jaguar
Subject:   local mail ends up in /var/mail/'username'

..and Mail.app cannot access this from the imap account. This was created with my localhost name as incoming server and smtp server. It appears to log on to it, but there's no mail. Any mail sent to a local alias ends up in /var/mail/'username'.
Outgoing mails don't get sent. mail.log reads:

Oct 3 16:20:42 Pismo imapd[588]: imaps SSL service init from
Oct 3 16:20:42 Pismo imapd[588]: Unable to load certificate from /imapd.pem, host=[]

The imap server was installed according to the article.

Any ideas?
Thanks up front.

    I get the following log when restarting sendmail:
    Oct 8 15:48:03 Pismo sendmail[1667]: restarting /usr/sbin/sendmail due to signal
    Oct 8 15:48:10 Pismo sendmail[1667]: gethostbyaddr( failed: 3
    Oct 8 15:48:10 Pismo sendmail[1926]: starting daemon (8.12.2): SMTP+queueing@01:00:00

    What's that last address?
    Similarly, when running: telnet localhost 25, I get:
    [Pismo:~] tjj% telnet localhost 25
    Trying ::1...
    telnet: connect to address ::1: Connection refused
    Connected to localhost.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    220 pismo.local ESMTP Sendmail 8.12.2/8.12.2; Tue, 8 Oct 2002 16:23:09 +0200 (CEST)

    Can send mail locally, also with mail.app, but cannot send externally, neither from terminal nor mail.app.
