Are you sure? When I first tried, I thought so too! I had forgotten than
sendmail has a feature, "Irritate the user while testing", that delays
repeat attempts to contact the remote. It is a progressive delay.

Have you done a find on the /var/spool/mqueue? From and end-user POV,
"It's broken" may be proper. From and admin/config, it maybe be "Which
part is broken?" is proper. There's sendmail itself, it has a mail
submission portion, a queue manager and all depends on name/IP
resolution (bind usually). This implies a lot opportunities for configs
to let you down.

There is only one *experienced* sendmailer in the world! ;-) He
justifiably stays in hiding I think!
