Yes. But in many cases you set the nmeserver simply to the IP of your router and the router (gateway) resolves the names for you.

No, nameservice is port 53.

No, your problems have nothing to do with sendmail. We tried to connect via telnet on port 25, telnet is independant from sendmail, and the connection was not possible. It is a problem with your router or another firewall or maybe your internet provider blocks connections on port 25 to other servers that the mailrelay of your provider.
