Did you have sendmail working before you installed mailscanner?
You need to do some things with sendmail so it accepts mail from other addresses.

First you need to edit /etc/mail/, find the following section:

    dnl This changes sendmail to only listen on the loopback device
    dnl and not on any other network devices. Comment this out if you want
    dnl to accept email over the network.
    DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp,Addr=, Name=MTA')
Change the line to
	DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp, Name=MTA')

You will then need to rebuild the file:

    m4 /etc/mail/ > /etc/


MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
