Under sendmail 8.12, the message submission program attempts to
deliver mail to the MTA running on localhost by default; for more
information on this switch, see:

http://www.sendmail.org/%7Eca/email/doc8.12/SECURITY

To fix, hack up the /usr/share/sendmail/cf/submit.mc file and change
the msp FEATURE to be something like:

FEATURE(`msp', `mail.example.org', `MSA')

And then rebuild the submit.cf.  More details in the
/usr/share/sendmail/README file.
