    You must install another POP3/IMAP daemon then. I guess you are currently using dovecot, but dovecot uses Maildir, not mbox.

    You can use maildir2mbox to convert your mailboxes: http://www.ezmlm.org/man/man1/maildir2mbox.1.html

    BTW, I don't recommend to change to Sendmail. It's so difficult to configure. Postfix is very easy compared to that.
