Yes. In a dual sendmail setup there are two instances of sendmail. The 
receiving one ("rx") dumps all email to amavis (TCP 10024), and then 
amavis hauls everything back again to the other instance ("tx") (using 
TCP 10025), which sends it away over net or piles it up in local mailboxes.

My conf for the "rx" instance is probably not important, as the "rx" 
instance does not actually contact anything outside localhost. The 
submit conf is for mail submission, so it is probably not used here.
