I'm leaving sendmail long ago since I'm migrated to Postfix..
but however as i still remember, default sendmail installation
is just listening to localhost.

so u need to alter the *.cf file ( in /etc/mail/ )..

# SMTP client options
O ClientPortOptions=Family=inet, Address=0.0.0.0

by default this line will be commented out ( with # or dnl ) or just listen to 
localhost

previously I faced this prob with old RedHat 7.x..

anyone who know this, maybe can correct me if I'm wrong

TQ
