I have sendmail configured and working well for a little while now, I use SquirellMail (web app from sourceforge) to be able to send and recieve. I have the Unix account setup fine to recieve mail but I can't send mail from the local unix account it, Mail.app says:
This message could not be delivered and will remain in your Outbox until it can be delivered. The reason for the failure is: Canít determine IP address of host: smtp.128kb.com..


I try to do this thew same way I would for any remote mail server by selecting IMAP or POP account and filling in the fields, and when the account is completed it puts everything in my home dir as a new message, recursively. SO everything under it as well and the Mail.app crashes (probably to much under my home dir)


How can I get Mail.app to work well with sending and recieving mail local mail?
