	I know this is a "generic" question, but fully CentOS related.  I
attempted to set up i386 v.4.1 on my primary computer at the co-located
site, and thought I had everything squared away till I discovered the
machine was refusing mail connections.  AFIK, I had no firewall or other
objects blocking port 25.  It has been my experience that with most arch's
and versions where sendmail is the stock mta, they always seem to work out
of the box with no tweaking at all.
	I have got to get this set up but will do it on a test machine
rather than the production machine.  Between that prblem and the changes
between bind 8 and 9, I was dead in the water from the outset.  Back online
with the BSD machine for the time being.
	Any reason why mail connections would be refused ?  (yes sendmail
was running too)
