you need to edit the file /etc/mail/sendmail.cf

there you need to search the line :
O DaemonPortOptions=Port=smtp,Addr=127.0.0.1, Name=MTA

you need to replace 127.0.0.1 to 0.0.0.0

and if this is not working ( rare )

you need to change the line to be like this
O DaemonPortOptions=Port=smtp, Name=MTA

(remove "Addr=127.0.0.1,")

also, in the /etc/hosts.allow add the below line

ipop3d:127.0.0.1,192.168.0.     (assume your internal ip is 192.168.0. subnet)
sendmail:all
