Is it possible that all the problems with sendmail are actually DNS problems and how can I test this?

Appreciate you help !

You can test if this are DNS or routing problems:

Please try to connect to the yahoo mailserver via telnet on the shell of your server. Enter the command:

telnet mx4.mail.yahoo.com 25
When you got an answer from the serve, you can close the connection by typing "quit".

The testsession should look similar like this:

# telnet mx4.mail.yahoo.com 25
Connected to mta-v4.mail.vip.mud.yahoo.com.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 mta230.mail.mud.yahoo.com ESMTP YSmtp service ready
221 mta230.mail.mud.yahoo.com
Connection closed by foreign host.
If not, please post the output in the forum.
