If you're seeing tcpwrappers rejection, it's because of /etc/hosts.deny and /etc/hosts.allow configurations. Any other rejections or access denied within sendmail would be because of /etc/mail/access. Check your rules carefully.
Do you see any problem with my /etc/mail/access file?

localhost.localdomain		RELAY
localhost			RELAY
127.0.0.1			RELAY
192.168.0.1			RELAY
ann					RELAY
ann.qtpi.local		RELAY

(I added the last three lines *after* mail failed working!)

I think I have fixed my tcwrapper problem by adding SENDMAIL: ALL
to /etc/hosts.allow. Except for this, I don't know *what* happened to a
working mail system. I was able to send and receive email to and from my
ISP as well as receive mail from root (logwatch) and MAILER-DAEMON. I
just don't know why!!
Can you post the mail log entries you have for the rejected mail? That would give a clue about why the mail was rejected.

I *think* this is enough. If not let me know.

Sep 11 04:02:38 ann sendmail[17435]: k8BB2cSJ017435: from=root,
size=891, class=0, nrcpts=1,
msgid=<200609111102 k8BB2cSJ017435 ann qtpi local>, relay=root localhost
Sep 11 04:02:38 ann sendmail[17437]: k8BB2ciL017437: tcpwrappers
(localhost.localdomain, 127.0.0.1) rejection

It does indeed look like a TCP Wrappers rejection. Did you make any other changes in hosts.allow or hosts.deny recently?

Paul.
