I don't know if we are talking the same thing here, but I have a couple
CentOS 4.3 boxes on my little LAN. I send email (IIRC - I might have to
double check *if* you all are interested) between the boxes no problem.
All I did was make the change that I mention (this thread, another?)
that tells sendmail to listen on more than localhost (which is the only
listening it does by default).

Let me know if you want me to double-check that. I'm pretty sure it
works because I need it to get down the road and have all my admin stuff
at one host. That's why I did it.
