if you want sendmail to listen to other IP than, edit the file 
/etc/mail/sendmail.mc, and comment this line:

DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp,Addr=, Name=MTA')

then run "make -C /etc/mail"

*DO NOT* edit the file /etc/sendmail.cf directly, unless you're absolutely 
know what you're doing.

Then add the following to your /etc/hosts.allow:

sendmail: ALL

Restart xinetd, restart sendmail.
