sendmail does not run from inetd (which seems to be correctly set up).
Check if you have a sendmail daemon running on each machine.
(Try telnet to port 25)
If not, start one with a command line like
/usr/sbin/sendmail -bd -q30m
(You should include this line in one of your startup scripts.)
If this doesn't work, there is something wrong with your sendmail.cf file.

If you send it to me, I will look at it. I am not a sendmail expert though.
