I believe Francis led you down the right road. In the sendmail.mc file
dnl # Uncomment and edit the following line if your outgoing mail needs to
dnl # be sent out through an external mail server:
dnl define(`SMART_HOST', `smtp.your.provider') dnl
smtp.your.provider is the server that will actually send your mail. This
should already be in your sendmail.mc file unless someone removed it. You will
have to remove dnl from the beginning and end of the line. and edit
smtp.your.provider to your actual server that sends the email
In our domain sending email out the normal port is restricted (denied by
firewall and vlan settings) on campus except for the campus mail server which I
define in my sendmail.mc file as the smart_host.
After editing the file you will need to run
make -C /etc/mail
which updates the sendmail.cf file. Then restart sendmail.
