I don't know if you've got this sorted yet, but...

If you're using fetchmail or netscape or something similar to get the mail, you
need to open up tcp port 110 (pop3 in /etc/services). The smtp port is only
used for sending mail (unless you are having your mail sent directly to you by
your ISP using sendmail, but if you're a home user I doubt that). What do you
mean by 'but there isn't any access from Internet'?

Hope that helps,
Chris
