Q. My sendmail service is running under Linux and whenever I try to telnet it from other LAN IP, it gives connection refuse error. If I connect it from localhost it accept connection. I can only send mail from my server only. How do I force sendmail to accept mail from other hosts/LAN ips?

# /etc/init.d/sendmail restart
Caution: You should configure firewall and other Sendmail Anti-Spam configuration control to avoid problems.
