sendmail relay to isp

I am lost and need some help. I have configured yast/network services/mail transfer agent to send mail to when mail is sent (via scalix) the /var/log/mail shows failures to – note NOT port 25 is CLOSED on and open on if I run echo “/mx”|/usr/sbin/sendmail -bt is responds only with!! It seems to me that sendmail is trying to use and NOT I have read and read forums on the web, but not been able to discover how to resolve this problem. Any help would be most appreciated. Jon

Use the ip address of the server instead :wink:

Thanks for the idea.
Changed MTA from to Stopped and started sendmail server.
Log still shows as relay; error is “no route to host”.
So there must be something else going on here.
