It does, but if the network interface wasn't up before sendmail started,
it never recovered.  At least that's the case with my Fedora 9 using
Network Manager.  All attempts fail until at some stage there's a
network restart while sendmail is running.

No amount of fiddling with the sendmail configuration aided me.

[tim at localhost ~]$ uname -r

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
