sendmail returned with error message in maillog file (dsn=5.0.0, stat=Service unavailable). I checked the /etc/hosts file, and added 'sendmail:localhost:allow' to /etc/hosts.allow. I still getting the same error message.
I also see the error message in /var/spool/mail/a342675 file (a342675 is the user sending e-mail).

I know sendmail port 25 is up running, also the sendmail daemon.
[root@faya4l2 mail]# netstat -alpn |grep sendmail

That being said, the 'for policy reasons' is interesting. What does your '/etc/mail/access' say?

I have another system and the sendmail works.
I copied the sendmail.cf file from the working system, and still failed.
