Unfortunantly, I don't have much more information for you right now. I will ask around and see if I can't some up with something. Keep an eye on this thread and I will let you know if I find out something. If you figure it out on your own, let me know becuase I'm kind of curious now.

Good Luck,
~Justin

Rridler, I have found something interesting. I just tried doing a telnet to your server on port 25 and it did not get through. I would imagine that has something to do with the issue.
Code:
telnet> o
(to) ridler.homedns.org 25
Trying 216.196.163.43...
telnet: connect to address 216.196.163.43: Connection refused
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused
telnet>
The thing is though, that traceroute you did looks like it should be getting through.

Good call pdeman2, I just assumed that since HE could telnet to his machine that I could also. I can telnet to his port 80, but not to port 25. rridler, run
Code:
ps -aux | grep sendmail
to see if sendmail is actually running correctly. If it is, then it should look something like this:
Code:
[jeelliso@dada ~]$ ps -aux | grep sendmail
root     32353  0.0  0.0  8084 3116 ?        Ss   14:27   0:00 sendmail: accepting connections
smmsp    32361  0.0  0.0  7136 2588 ?        Ss   14:27   0:00 sendmail: Queue runner@01:00:00 for /var/spool/clientmqueue
jeelliso 32642  0.0  0.0  4872  636 pts/0    S+   15:49   0:00 grep sendmail
Maybe we can fix this after all; I'm not giving up yet.

Can you see if the messages you're trying to send are queued with the "mailq" command? If you do "echo "/mx pomeroy.com"|/usr/sbin/sendmail -bt" it should return the three mailserver addresses for the domain. Can you telnet to any and all of them on port 25?

echo "/mx pomeroy.com"|/usr/sbin/sendmail -bt
ADDRESS TEST MODE (ruleset 3 NOT automatically invoked)
Enter <ruleset> <address>
> getmxrr(pomeroy.com) returns 3 value(s):
mail.pomeroy.com.

Your ISP may be blocking or filtering port 25. You may need to set up a smart host in sendmail.

Thanks for all the help, but it does seem to be that my ISP does block port 25 and they don't allow use of port 25 unless I have a business class account with them. RATS!!!!!!!

So much for my own email account. RATS, RATS, RATS!!!!!!!!

Unless you have an other way to work around it...............................
