I'm not sure when the default was changed, but that is
the correct behavior for an unmodified Redhat/fedora sendmail.
You have to change this line in sendmail.mc 
DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp,Addr=127.0.0.1, Name=MTA')dnl
to
DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp,Name=MTA')dnl
then rebuild sendmail.cf and restart sendmail if you want it
to accept mail over the network.  You also have to
add your network address to a line in /etc/mail/access
like:
192.168.0 RELAY
for networks that should be able to forward non-local mail
out through this server (and rebuild the access.db database).
