Mark, I think you'll find that you'll need to have the 'Internet Mail 
Service' installed on the Exchange box. Exchange server prior to 
Ex2000 did not have SMTP enabled by default. I think it was an 
extra option to be purchased (Internet Mail Connector). Exchange 
running as a stand-alone mail (internal) server does not need it.

If you can get access to Exchange Administrator or on to the 
server itself, check the 'connections' area of the configuration.

If you have checked here and the server appears to have the 
Internet Mail Connector then there are further settings that can be 
modified to allow connections from other boxes. I can't remember 
the details specifically. My Exchange server at work is configured 
to anly accept SMTP connections from 1 other server, perhaps this 
might be the cause of the problem for you? You may need to add 
the box running sendmail to the ACL.
