In that case you might as well just shut down sendmail. Or if you only 
want it to listen on an 'inside' interface, set the appropriate address 
in the DAEMON_OPTIONS entry in /etc/mail/sendmail.mc (which you must 
have already modified since the default is to only use the loopback 
interface   But you can still control connections completely 
  in /etc/mail/access.
