there are some settings in redhat that you have to change in order for it to listen on your IP, check out
this should get you what you want to know.
let me know how you go.

  I have sendmail running on Redhat 7.3 but it seems that it only listens on localhost.locadomain.
  netstat -a | grep smtp
  tcp        0      0 localhost.localdom:smtp *:*                    LISTEN

  So I can do "telnet localhost 25"
  but not "telnet [ip address] 25"
  Any ideas to make sendmail to listen on my ip?
