Giorgos thank you for your response and assistance once again. I have
additional details below I hope that will allow use to further locate
the issue.

localhost is not resolved via dns but instead using /etc/hosts file.
firewall-1# getent hosts
::1               localhost  localhost.xxx.com
127.0.0.1         localhost  localhost.xxx.com firewall-1.xxx.com firewall-1

firewall-1#  fgrep sendmail_ /etc/rc.conf
sendmail_enable="NO"
sendmail_outbound_enable="NO"
sendmail_submit_enable="YES"
sendmail_msp_queue_enable="YES"

firewall-1# fgrep DirectSubmissionModifiers /etc/mail/sendmail.cf
/etc/mail/submit.cf
/etc/mail/sendmail.cf:#O DirectSubmissionModifiers
/etc/mail/submit.cf:#O DirectSubmissionModifiers

Thanks once again.
