OK, here is some more info... I can send mail from the
server - no problem.  I can use Mozilla mail to check
my emails, but I CAN'T REPLY to them... I can use
Usermin to check my emails and reply to them.  Mozilla
mail or Thunderbird or some other MUA are the culprits
that CANNOT SEND (from a client in the network).

I have my laptop's ip# in the /etc/mail/relay-domains
(as well as several other ip#'s from my network).

I have my domain in the /etc/mail/access xxx.xxx.xxx
RELAY (that should allow everyone in my domain to
send, right?) 

This is a RH8 box with upgraded sendmail rpms (8.12.8)
via the k12ltsp apt repositories.

Do you Yahoo!? 
Yahoo! Mail - You care about security. So do we.
