problem with sendmail
 
I am new to linux and have installed red hat linux 8.0 in my PC. I am able to send mail but my server is not accepting mail I have installed sendmail. Please tell me what to do get mails.

You will require an MX entry in your DNS databases to point to your mail server.

Sendmail too should be told to accept mails for your domain.

Is port 25 open on your system.

What is the error response?

And change the interface that sendmail is listening on, possibly it's only listening on the 127.0.0.1 if you haven't changed it.

What do I change the port to from 127.0.0.1.
The errot it shows is
mail -v sanjib@pc
Subject:
test
.
Cc:
sanjib@pc... Connecting to pc.boseinst.ernet.in. via esmtp...
sanjib@pc... Connecting to cb.boseinst.ernet.in. via esmtp...
sanjib@pc... Deferred: Connection refused by cb.boseinst.ernet.in.


But when i replace the sendmail rpm from Redhat 6.2 the sendmail works fine
