sendmail timeouts

By jocon ·
We are currently expericing frequent timeouts (client side) when users try to retrieve mails from our sendmail (linux 6.0) server. During this times, we have noticed that our memory usage shoots uo to 90+% - total memory is 256MB. Any ideas on how we can resolve this? Only sendmail and FTP services are running on our server.

Look in the maillog and message log files.
Are there any errors?

Ok,
This is probably stupid, since SendMail can do everything, but I thought it was not a mail retrieving program. (Mail creating, Local delivery to /var/spool/mail, and transport (relay), but not retrieving) I thought that you had to use a POP or IMAP protocol to get mail from a server. What client are you using ? ...and... where is it ? (pine-localhost, eudora-win98, whatever?)
