Thanks for your response. I've taken a look into my sendmail 'mc' file
and found this:
----- BEGIN SNIP -----
VERSIONID(`$FreeBSD: src/etc/sendmail/freebsd.mc,v 1.27 2002/10/16
22:52:56 keramida Exp $')
FEATURE(access_db, `hash -o -T<TMPF> /etc/mail/access')
FEATURE(mailertable, `hash -o /etc/mail/mailertable')
FEATURE(virtusertable, `hash -o /etc/mail/virtusertable')
dnl Uncomment to allow relaying based on your MX records.
dnl NOTE: This can allow sites to use your server as a backup MX without
dnl your permission.
----- END SNIP -----
Looks as if it's disabled.
BTW, how can I check if somebody specifies me as his MX? ;-)
