I'm trying to configure sendmail 8.12.3/SuSE Linux 0.6 on suse 8.0.  I have simple requirements which worked fine in suse 7+.  I want the machine to not listen for mail and to forward everything to another machine including local mail.  

Things I have changed in various files:


SENDMAIL_ARGS="-Am -q30m -om"
SENDMAIL_CLIENT_ARGS="-L sendmail-client -Ac -q30m"

the file:
# smart relay host

# who I send unqualified names to (null means deliver locally)

# who gets all local email traffic ($R has precedence for unqualified names)

but when I do this and restart sendmail I get this:

# echo test22|mail -v -s test22 kim
kim... Connecting to via relay...
kim... Deferred: Connection refused by

Before I give up and install postfix I thought I'd ask on the list to see if anyone had any ideas.
