sendmail and pop3d setup

I have redhat 4.2 running on my in-house network.  Sendmail is working fine as a SMTP server for the other W95 machines on the net; likewise pop3d works fine as a POP3 server to those machines.  BUT... sendmail and pop3d don't seem to know about each other, so mail from one local user to another does not end up in the recipient's POP3 mailbox.

Sendmail's store is in /var/spool/mail; pop3d's store is in /usr/spool/mail.  Is fixing this as simple as getting sendmail to use the same dir structure as pop3d?  If so, how?  I can't find anything in sendmail.cf to change this, and pop3d doesn't seem to use *any* config file.

If it requires a procmail recipe or something similar, does anyone have an example recipe/script/etc to handle it?

Thanks!

I had exactly the same problem once. What you need to do is get a new copy of pop.3d. Untar and unzip it. Then do a grep /usr/spool/mail *.* in the dir all the files are. One of the file s (a .h file I think) has this in it and you need to change this to /var/spool/mail. Then do the make and make install, etc...

This will fix the problem,

Cheers,
