Sounds like it's trying to resolve your hostname. Do you have the client's ip
address & name in the server's /etc/hosts file?
(eg. my firewall's hosts file looks like:
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
192.168.1.1 cordelia.sunnydale cordelia
192.168.1.10 buffy.sunnydale buffy
192.168.1.12 willow.sunnydale willow
192.168.1.14 faith.sunnydale faith
where the firewall is 'cordelia', and I can ssh into it without problems.)

Sounds like qmail isn't actually running. Did you add a qmail init script and
a link from your normal runlevel to it? (/etc/init.d/qmail and
/etc/rc3.d/S100qmail or similar)
You know you don't actually need qmail/fetchmail to read/send mail with
kmail, right? I don't use qmail myself, but others here do.
