Could be the way the network NIC is configured, the fact that I'm running 6.1 under a 5.7 host, or who knows, but the server isn't accepting mail at all, even after changing the line in the .mc file to accept mail from hosts other than localhost and rebuilding the .cf file.

CentOS 6 offers two primary MTAs: Postfix and Sendmail. Postfix is configured as the default MTA, although it is easy to switch the default MTA to Sendmail. To switch the default MTA to Sendmail, you can either uninstall Postfix or use the following command to switch to 

~]# alternatives --config mta
