sendmail question on HPUX

I am able to use sendmail to send emails from server1 to recipients but only if they are in the company domain. For all attempts to send email to an external account outside of the corporate domain, the mail sits in the queue and I receive this message.

Mailqueue      sendmail daemon could not receive/send mail to firstname.lastname@gmail.com: Deferred: Connection timed out with alt4.gmail-smtp-in.l.google.com.

Is there an update that needs to be made to the sendmail.cf file in order to correct this?

Thanks

May be the "mail relay" server, not relaying the mails outside the company domain.  This could be your company standard, or inadvertently designed that way.

It's not a policy issue, but a setup/config issue, more than likely inadvertent.
Wondering if there's a way to resolve via the sendmail.cf file

It turned out to be a firewall issue in connection with this server .... something that hadn't occured to me. Thanks a lot for the info!
