Sendmail not working in SUNOS

Hi All

i am trying to send a mail from SunOS to my outlook mail but it is not working neither giving any error
please suggest
 # uuencode /tmp/t.txt t.txt | mailx -s test

 # uname -a
SunOS 5.9 Generic_122300-25 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-V440

# 2  
"Not working" means WHAT?
Try sending to another recipient, mayhap on the same host.
# 3  
There is a lot of possibilities.
Has sendmail been configured to correctly send internet mail?
What are your inbound server settings in Outlook?
Is there an undelivered email in the root mailbox?
Is the test email still in the outbound mail queue?
# 4  

There are a number of things to check here, but I'll start with the simple ones.
  1. Is the actual sendmail process running?
  2. Is the Smart Relay set?
  3. What have you checked already?
