Actually I had to do a reboot yesterday 'cause the system just froze
and I couldn't establish an ssh connection. That may have been the
cause so sendmail has been restarted.
I'm behind the UCD firewall so I've only opened http and ssh ports so
SMTP *should* be blocked from all but internal. The only major
changes I made to my system was to install KDE3 last week - perhaps
this has something to do with it?
