How to make sendmail listen on an address other than the loopback

I'm trying to get an e-mail system working for my church (whitneybaptist.org).
I've added a file called local-host-names in /etc/mail as described in the
Handbook, then did "/etc/rc.d/sendmail restart" and then did "sockstat | grep
sendmail" and got the following results:
root sendmail 32889 3 tcp4 127.0.0.1:25 *:*
root sendmail 32889 4 dgram -> /var/run/logpriv
smmsp sendmail 696 3 dgram -> /var/run/log
Now, with the exception of the additional file, nothing has been done to this
stock sendmail configuration (system is 6.2-RELEASE-p7). How would I make
sendmail listen on the ip of 192.168.2.23? I do have some experience with
sendmail, however, it was several years ago and I've forgotten quite a bit.
Why isn't it listening on that address now?
