First, make sure this (or something darn near like it) is indeed
in /etc/mail/sendmail.cf:
	Ft/etc/mail/trusted-users %[^\#]

Now, if this process actually winds up invoking sendmail binary
vs talking to port 25, you'll also need to add that FEATURE
to /etc/mail/submit.mc and remake (no restart required).

Welcome to the world of split personality sendmail :)

No, and I don't recall seeing that, but 'tis been a while :)
