sendmail sends but no receive
I'm using fedora 4 and have been trying to set up to receive emails.
Using evolution I am able to send mail out to my webmail address (and others)
but have not been able to receive. I am not sure if this is an evolution configuration problem or sendmail. Any tips would be helpful.

What's in the mail log?

Is this related to your problem?

Thanks for your response Falko
Iv'e attached my mail log. Attachment 73. The link you suggested I will look at again when I'm at home.
I had read it before posting this and did'nt think it was relevent, but I may be wrong and will follow it through when I get home, but at least I can send. I am not running webmin so how to I check "SMTP Port Options" from the command line interface.

thanks for your help

Is your server behind a router, on a DSL line with a dynamic IP address? It's likely that big email providers block these IP addresses. Another reason might be that your server doesn't have a proper PTR or SPF record.
Please contact Yahoo and ask them about their policies regarding the acceptance of emails.
