1. Is sendmail running on the server?
(Note - sendmail does not have to be running - just wondering if it is or not)

2. What errors are you seeing when you attempt to send mail from this server? Post what you find, please.

3. You can run the following command to check Sendmail for set up errors - /usr/lib/sendmail -d0.1 -bt < /dev/null - and post what version of Sendmail you are using.

4. Check your file for forwarder information - normally this is where you could change the configuration to forward to a main mail exchanger. NOTE: make copies of any files you are going to edit.
