    Can you configure Sendmail to listen on all interfaces?

    I think you can enable this somewhere in /etc/mail/sendmail.cf.

    output screen as you suggested

    Dear Sir,

    Thanks for your suggestions and help.
    below are the output of commands as you suggested
    ==========================================================
    [root@rks ~]# netstat -tap | grep smtp
    tcp 0 0 *:smtp *:* LIST EN 30167/sendmail: acc
    tcp 0 0 rks.hpitr.com:smtp rks.hpitr.com:49854 TIME _WAIT -
    ===================================================

    I have also checked our ip is not blacklisted anywhere.
    Is there this problem coming because of mx records.
    below are the mx record details
    MX Lookup
    Domain Name: testbag.com

    dns1.vsnl.com reports the following MX records:

    Preference Host Name IP Address TTL
    0 mail.net4india.com 202.71.129.84 86400

    Please suggest me what can be solution of this problem

    Regards,
    Vijay

    This means that mails for your domain go to the mail.net4india.com server. If you want the mails to go to your server, you must change the MX record.

    No. You must use an A record (i.e., an FQDN) in the MX record, not an IP address.
