I think you should really have


in /etc/resolv.conf

But having said that, if you are connecting to your relay,
it doesn't look like it is a resolver issue on your webserver.

I suggested looking at netstat -ant to see if your connection was stuck in
SYN_SENT, which would mean that you couldn't establish a tcp connection to
your relay, which is what your error suggests.

Can you send mail as root?  run

sendmail someone at
type your message followed by a full stop on a line on its own, and look at
the log.

Perhaps your sendmail config doesn't allow user nobody to send mail or your
firewall is blocking something
