Looks more like what I'd expect.

What's happening when you send?

Did you work out the location of sendmail and look at the other logged errors?

perhaps you should do things this way:
Code:
127.0.0.1       localhost loopback
192.168.1.22    gameserver.homenetwork gameserver
192.168.1.16    vista vista.homenetwork
192.168.1.19    tony tony.homenetwork
I'm not sure if you can bind your IPV6 same as your IPV4 but just try it.
Code:
::1             gameserver.homenetwork gameserver
I think it's better to bind it with a different name though.
Code:
::1             gameserveralso.homenetwork gameserveralso
or maybe not

Smile Test SMTP manually

First, ensure that your sendmail server is working by manually sending a message using Telnet:

Here are the commands/replies from sendmail.
My comments are in []
Prompt is represented by $
Your commands are bold
Replies are italicized

$ telnet localhost 25 [connect to the SMTP interface]

Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to hostname (127.0.0.1).
Escape character is '^]'.
220 hostname ESMTP Sendmail 8.13.6/8.13.4; Fri, 14 Mar 2008 10:25:35 -0400

mail from: test@test.com
250 2.1.0 test@test.com... Sender ok
rcpt to: test2@test.com [put your email address here]
250 2.1.5 test2@test.com... Recipient ok
data
354 Enter mail, end with "." on a line by itself
This is the email text
.
[note the period by itself on a line. this ends the data.]
250 2.0.0 m29CFEFT901481344 Message accepted for delivery
quit
221 2.0.0 hostname closing connection
Connection closed by foreign host.


If you can't send mail this way, you have a problem with your SMTP server, not squirrelmail.
It appears that squirrelmail is trying to use a different smtp authentication that is not enabled in your sendmail config files.

Hope this helps some...

Yeah I'm at a brick wall. I just keep getting the 500 5.5.1 Command unrecognized: "AUTH LOGIN"
I would really like to get this working. But nothing I'm doing seems to work :'-(

Ok I rebuilt php-extensions with imap, then it works? Sendmail is sort of hanging with sending mail, I don't get errors now. We'll see if it works.

Edit:
Deferred: Name server: mx1.hotmail.com.: host name lookup failure
