By default, sendmail only listens on 127.0.0.1. If it works locally the that's
likely the problem.
Edit /etc/mail/sendmail.mc and look for this stanza
dnl # The following causes sendmail to only listen on the IPv4 loopback
dnl # 127.0.0.1 and not on any other network devices. Remove the loopback
dnl # address restriction to accept email from the internet or intranet.
dnl # DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp,Addr=127.0.0.1, Name=MTA')dnl
In this example, it's listening on the smtp port for all IPv4 addresses.
After making the change, while still in /etc/mail, type
make -C /etc/mail
When that finishes
/sbin/service sendmail restart
Then try sending yourself mail from hotmail.
