I've been unable to get sendmail to send mail properly and am hoping
someone can give some advice.  My internet connection is fine; I can use
ssh, http, etc. without any trouble.  My machine connects to a a router
which is connected to a cable modem:

aleph# netstat -r
Routing tables

Destination        Gateway            Flags    Refs      Use  Netif Expire

aleph# ifconfig rl0

        inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast
        ether 00:e0:4c:98:36:fa
        media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>)
        status: active

I can't send any mail though.  The first entries in my mail queue:
i22K75of000208        3 Tue Mar  2 15:07 <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>
                 (Deferred: Operation timed out with math.umd.edu.)
                                         <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>
i22K6mof000198        5 Tue Mar  2 15:06 <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>
                 (Deferred: Operation timed out with math.umd.edu.)
                                         <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>

And lots more like it.  I can telnet to math.umd.edu port 25 just fine.
I've also tried sending to other addresses and using '-f' to set my return
address.  That unfortunately exhausts my knowledge of sendmail!

I'd greatly appreciate any help!  I browsed some on the internet and saw
that someone once had a similar problem with his hostname being set
incorrectly.  I wasn't sure how to look at that though...
