IPv4 only. When I restart sendmail, I get the following output, which if
I'm interpreting correctly, means that sendmail isn't going to try to
use IPv6 when it's running:

Oct 17 19:13:23 mymailserver sm-mta[33703]: starting daemon (8.13.6):
[EMAIL PROTECTED]:30:00
Oct 17 19:13:23 mymailserver sm-mta[33703]: NOQUEUE: SYSERR(root):
opendaemonsocket: daemon IPv6: can't create server SMTP socket: Protocol
not supported
Oct 17 19:13:23 mymailserver sm-mta[33703]: NOQUEUE: SYSERR(root):
opendaemonsocket: daemon IPv6: optional socket disabled
Oct 17 19:13:23 mymailserver sm-msp-queue[33707]: starting daemon
(8.13.6): [EMAIL PROTECTED]:30:00

It looks like you are trying to run sendmail on IPv6. You can turn on or off support for IPv6 in the DaemonPortOptions in your *.cf files in /etc/mail. I would check those and also check your IP stack configuration doing:
ifconfig -a
