sendmail issue


I have a new Red Hat Version 5 server that I have configured sendmail on to be able to send mail only... Issue is it isn't working, as I receive message: Connection refused by [127.0.0.1]

I have it working on several other servers but this one is a mistery so far...

What I see with sendmail that is running is:
[root ~]# ps -ef |grep sendmail
root 4258 1 0 11:01 ? 00:00:00 sendmail: Queue runner@01:00:00 for /var/spool/mqueue
smmsp 4268 1 0 11:01 ? 00:00:00 sendmail: Queue runner@01:00:00 for /var/spool/clientmqueue
[root ~]# netstat -an |grep LISTEN |grep 25
[root ~]# telnet localhost 25
Trying 127.0.0.1...
telnet: connect to address 127.0.0.1: Connection refused
[root ~]#

And on my other working servers I see:
[root@ ~]# service sendmail status
sendmail (pid 6486 6476) is running...
[root ~]# ps -ef |grep sendm
root 6476 1 0 Jan08 ? 00:00:00 sendmail: accepting connections
smmsp 6486 1 0 Jan08 ? 00:00:00 sendmail: Queue runner@01:00:00 for /var/spool/clientmqueue
root 28143 27764 0 12:54 pts/1 00:00:00 grep sendm
[root ~]# netstat -an |grep LISTEN |grep 25
tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:25 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN
[root ~]# telnet localhost 25
Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to localhost.localdomain (127.0.0.1).
Escape character is '^]'.
220 mfl-rhel5 ESMTP Sendmail 8.13.8/8.13.8; Tue, 13 Jan 2009 12:55:03 -0500
^]
telnet> quit
Connection closed.
[root ~]#

I don't understand what isn't starting correctly that I don't see: sendmail: accepting connections running....
