Default Using mail client (thunderbird , oulook) with fedora 9 perfect setup

Hello
i have a server running quite well. i used the perfect setup from howtoforge to get it up .
but now i am wondering if configuring a mail client like outlook or thunderbird or a mobile mail client can fetch mails from the server with it . if yes what should be the pop server address and the smtp server address ..?
thanks

You can use any FQDN or IP address that points to the server.

thanks falko .. i tried out my servers ip address . but before that i did a port scan to check the opened port . seems that port 25 is open but not port 110 . so smtp work perfectly well .. but pop doesn't how do i open the port on a fedora 9 server . and how can i check if pop3 is active for all the virtual domains ..?
i recieve mails on most of them so can i conclud that pop3 is active . ? if yes how can the port 110 be closed .?

falko you are the best
it's the second time you put me on the right tract
. i tried using the ip address as pop3 and smtp server it work at first with just the smtp . pop3 wasn't responding seems that the port was closed . i check with nmap but the server was working well . . port forwarding and virtual servers were perfectly set on the router . so i was wondering what was wrong . it seems that with the pop3 port 110 . the server doesn't connect but it connect on the secure port 995 . so everything is perfectly well .
thank you very much for you advices
