Last week I was having a problem receiving mail due to the fact that our domain name expired.  This problem has been resolved, but now I am unable to send and receive email.  After the domain name was resolved we were able to send and receive for 5 days until Sunday when the send and receive stopped.  I think it is something to do with Sendmail.  I restarted our mail server and it started.  I also checked our MX record and it is pointing to the correct server.

Note that EE has a sendmail-specific TA --> http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Email_Groupware/Sendmail/

It's goind to be difficult to help you unless you provide some background info, like the platform on which sendmail is running, the VERSION of sendmail, and recent/relevant log file entries that might provide some clues. Also, any error messages received by people trying to send you E-Mail would be helpful.

OK, can I change where this question is posted?  I am running Linux, and the sendmail version is 8.11.6.  Noone is getting any error messages they just aren't getting here.  There is some kind of delay.  When I check the configuration in outlook, I takes about 15 seconds to find the POP3 server, I don't know if this is an indication or not.
Thanks
