Connection refused by [127.0.0.1]
Just got screwed by comcast - they blocked port 25 w/o any kind of notice, rat fink $%^&. After a day of research, I got some additional services from noip which are now allowing me to send/receive email from all the various clients except the centos box itself.
On that one, I'm getting connection refused messages:
The mail log entry for that particular call is:
$ sendmail -v email@example.com << eof
> Subject: direct from sendmail
firstname.lastname@example.org... Connecting to [127.0.0.1] via relay...
email@example.com... Deferred: Connection refused by [127.0.0.1]
This was all working before comcast decided to screw the pooch. I have appropriate entries in local-host-names and access files:
Mar 10 19:13:32 fw sendmail: r2B0DW8R001939: from=dkoleary, size=30, class=0, nrcpts=1, msgid=<201303110013.r2B0DW8R001939@fw.olearycomputers.com>, relay=dkoleary@localhost
Mar 10 19:13:32 fw sendmail: r2B0DW8R001939: firstname.lastname@example.org, ctladdr=dkoleary (500/110), delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay, pri=30030, relay=[127.0.0.1] [127.0.0.1], dsn=4.0.0, stat=Deferred: Connection refused by [127.0.0.1]
I even tried remaking the access map to no avail. Anyone have an idea what I'm missing?
$ cat local\-host\-names
$ grep -v ^# access
Thanks for any hints/tips/suggestions.

Can you try running:
It seems like sendmail is not configured to listen on localhost
netstat -tan | grep 25
It could als be that it's set to not allowing relay without authenticating.
