can't I receive or send mail

Redhat 7.2,

I have sendmail up and running 8.11.6-3.

Anyway, If I am on the Linux box I can send mail. However, If I use a windoz box to send mail I get an error.

The connection to the server has failed. Account: '', Server: '', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10061, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

I also get this error when mail cannot be sent.

Deferred: Connection refused by

But I can receive mail that was sent from the linux box to itself using the windoz box.

Also, if I send mail from any account like hotmail or yahoo the email dissapears. it never gets to the server.

Sendmail config using webmin

I have

local domain set

trusted user

outgoing domain

relay domain


my access file looks like this

localhost.localdomain RELAY
localhost RELAY RELAY



Any ideas?

Thanks in advance
