I don't know much about sendmail either (I use qmail myself; much simpler to set up), but the error message you're getting is caused by not being able to make a connection to a particular port on the local computer.

There can be several causes for this:[list=1][*]A server isn't running that should be. Try
Code:
/etc/rc.d/sendmail restart
, then read the end of /var/log/messages[*]One of the port settings is wrong; e.g. POP3 runs on port 110 but POP3s on port 995. See the /etc/services file[*]A firewall is blocking the connection; check that the local machine is allowed to connect to all necessary ports in your firewall setup.[/list=1]
