I'm afraid I haven't kept notes about your network setup, the name and
IP address of each server involved, and their Sendmail options.

Can you, please, show me what these commands print?

	server1# ifconfig -a
        server1# host
        server1# host
        server1# host -t mx

	server2# ifconfig -a
        server2# host
        server2# host
        server2# host -t mx

A detailed description (including verbatim copies of the relevant files)
of the Sendmail setup on each host would be very nice too.
