[K12OSN] Help! Sendmail doesn't SEND - only receives

Did you get Les's earlier suggestion to try 'service sendmail stop; service 
sendmail start' and to check the /var/log/maillog file?  Assuming restarting 
sendmail doesn't fix it, try using sendmail on the commandline to send a message:

/usr/sbin/sendmail -v aslanreturn at yahoo.com
Enter a short message here, followed by a dot (.) on a line all by itself,
like so:

After you enter the dot and hit Return, you should see sendmail try to send your 
message to your address above, or, hopefully, indicate why it can't send mail.
