You can have several copies of the sendmail book, each of which you've read
several times, and you won't be any nearer getting POP working :-) sendmail
is an SMTP server, mainly designed to move mail from mail server to mail
server using, surprisingly, SMTP. POP is a protocol designed for client
access to mailboxes on servers which, presumably, have filled said mailboxes
using sendmail or some other SMTP server.

Easy enough - just setup a pop server on yur nice shiny new server box.
