I suspect sendmail is reading /etc/hosts.allow

Did you comment out the above line?
Here's the entire file as it is right now:
# Deny sendmail to all clients (temporary)
sendmail : all : deny
# Allow anything from localhost
all : <local ip> : allow
# Process SSH deny rules
sshd : /etc/hosts.evil : deny
# Allow everything else
all : all : allow
Once I can get sendmail to block all connection requests, I'll move it
below the second rule. That way, only local processes will be able to
use it. For now, however, that rule is being ignored completely.
