The server is internal to our network.  The real world doesn't know about it.

As in replace sendmail with something like postfix?  This is the first time I've ever had to deal with a mail server, so I have no preference.

I now suspect the issue is with the server I'm relaying to, as it is accepting the mails I send, but nothing happens beyond that.
