if you get ( doing a netstat -an more )

tcp 0 0\* LISTEN

Then your sendmail server is configured to accept connections from localhost only.

To change this behavior, you need to edit /etc/mail/ Find the line that starts with DAEMON_OPTIONS ( suggest vi +/DAEMON_OPTIONS ) and edit the field Addr= to change it to your IP Address.

Then go down approx. 7 lines and comment out the line that reads:


Next, exit vi (or whatever editor you use) and do…

m4 /etc/mail/ \> /etc/

Restart sendmail, and you should be able to receive mail from other mhosts
