sendmail issue...

Hello all... this is my first post on these forums. Sendmail is certainly not one of my fortes, and to be honest, I haven't messed with Linux in about a year. I used to know alot more about Linux configurations and what not, but I've forgotten alot of stuff, and I'm relearning it as I go.

This past week, I bought a virtual dedicated server to house all of my domains, but I'm having some problems with outgoing mail from this server.... it is from godaddy, and it's running Fedora Core 2. I installed pine, and I've been using it to test the mailing (I've also been using a PHP script, but both are yielding the same results)

So, the problem is that I'm able to send emails to certain domains, and not to others. I am consistenly getting emails sent from this server to my work email, my Gmail account, 1 of the domains hosted on the server, and my buddies yahoo account.... but I'm NEVER getting emails sent to my buddies work email, one of my other domains that is hosted on a different server, and 1 of the other domains hosted on that same Virtual dedicated server.

Does anyone have any ideas as to why it is consistently sending emails to some domains but not others, and where in the configuration of sendmail should I be focusing my debugging... thanks.
