You can try telnet'ing to port 25 on the problem host from your other machine
by hand and see what happens. However, sendmail really wants valid DNS for
mail servers, so changing /etc/hosts probably isn't going going to be enough.
Consider using a mailertable entry with [10.0.0.247] to disable MX lookups,
rather than a hostname...
