Are you running SELinux? If so, you need to turn on the ability to
send email from the web server, if that is what you are trying to do.

You will have to read the Sendmail documentation. Depending on
exactly what you mean by test email, there are commands to do it.
But I don't run Sendmail any more, and I don't remember the exact
commands.

You can set up Sendmail to use a relay host. So what you want to do
is set up your ISPs SMTP server as your relay host. I think the
default sendmail.mc file has a line for this, but it is commented out.
