Your sendmail doesn't seem to be configured to listen to the external 
world.  Try to comment out the following line in /etc/mail/ 
(or wherever it is on your Suse server):
DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp,Addr=, Name=MTA')dnl
dnl DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp,Addr=, Name=MTA')dnl

then run make to recreate and restart MS.

Don't forget to make sure your server's firewall let port 25 flow through...
