two things to do, first put your domain name ( in
/etc/mail/ (note, you may have to create that file) then
restart sendmail. any other domains you want to accept mail for need to
be listed in this file - example
#domains i recieve mail for

after making a change to this file, you will need to restart sendmail or
kill -HUP it to get it to reread this file

next, in /etc/hosts.allow add
sendmail: ALL : ALLOW

newer versions of sendmail (rpms anyway) are coming compiled with tcp
wrapper support.
