Default sendmail rejected local connection

Thanks for all the explanations.

No... OK, so the problem is acutally sendmail. My bad.

It seems to me that sendmail is not accepting local smtp connections:

Sep 29 14:00:06 coral sm-msp-queue[11799]: o8THO6vW011692: to=test@email.com, ctladdr=me (myid/mygrp), delay=00:36:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay, pri=210140, relay=[127.0.0.1] [127.0.0.1], dsn=4.0.0, stat=Deferred: Connection refused by [127.0.0.1]
Sep 29 14:00:06 coral sm-msp-queue[11799]: o8TEe1OX009848: to=root, delay=03:20:05, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay, pri=931826, relay=[127.0.0.1] [127.0.0.1], dsn=4.0.0, stat=Deferred: Connection refused by [127.0.0.1]
Sep 29 14:00:06 coral sm-msp-queue[11799]: o8TAT6ga009319: to=root, ctladdr=root (0/0), delay=07:31:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay, pri=2100639, relay=[127.0.0.1] [127.0.0.1], dsn=4.0.0, stat=Deferred: Connection refused by [127.0.0.1]

On googling for the cure, I found some posts that suggest to
tweak daemon options. Here is my current setting:

root@coral:/etc/mail# grep smtp *.mc
sendmail.mc:dnl DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Family=inet6, Name=MTA-v6, Port=smtp, Addr=::1')dnl
sendmail.mcAEMON_OPTIONS(`Family=inet, Name=MTA-v4, Port=smtp, Addr=127.0.0.1')dnl
sendmail.mc:MAILER(`smtp')dnl

$ grep DaemonPortOptions *.cf
sendmail.cf:O DaemonPortOptions=Family=inet, Name=MTA-v4, Port=smtp, Addr=127.0.0.1
sendmail.cf:O DaemonPortOptions=Family=inet, Name=MSP-v4, Port=submission, M=Ea, Addr=127.0.0.1
submit.cf:O DaemonPortOptions=Name=NoMTA, Addr=127.0.0.1, M=E

Anything wrong with it?

How can I enable sendmail to accept local smtp connections for
apps like emacs? (sendmail from the command line works fine)

Thanks.

because of the sendmail service is not started (this is a new install).

update-rc.d sendmail defaults
invoke-rc.d sendmail start

problem solved.
