What version of sendmail did you upgrade from/to ?

Interesting, access problems should've been detected before winding up at
the program mailer - unless listar reads that file itself (which I doubt).

Which form did you add in access?  You can skip the names, and use subnetting:
Connect:10              RELAY
Connect:127             RELAY
Connect:172.16          RELAY   #repeat this line for .17-.31
Connect:192.168         RELAY
Connect:[IPv6:::1]      RELAY
