You will also need to modify the following section of sendmail.mc to
allow the server to listen on the local LAN if not already done.

dnl # The following causes sendmail to only listen on the IPv4 loopback

dnl # 127.0.0.1 and not on any other network devices. Remove the
loopback
dnl # address restriction to accept email from the internet or intranet.
dnl #
DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp,Addr=127.0.0.1, Name=MTA')dnl
dnl #
