    You don't say what Operating System you're running, however this looks very
much like a RedHat system.  By default RedHat installs Sendmail and sets it to
only allow localhost deliveries.

If so, in your sendmail.mc file, change:
    DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp,Addr=, Name=MTA')
    dnl DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp,Addr=, Name=MTA')

To comment it out. Rebuild sencmail.cf with:
    cp /etc/sendmail.cf /etc/sendmail.cf.save
    m4 /etc/mail/sendmail.mc > /etc/sendmail.cf
    service sendmail restart

The release notes cover this.  By default, sendmail only listens on

W | I haven't lost my mind; it's backed up on tape somewhere.
