Well that tells me dovecot is working fine but sendmail is not listening
to roaming mail clients.

Sending of message failed.
The message could not be sent because connecting to SMTP server
foo.domainname.ca failed. The server may be unavailable or is refusing
SMTP connections. Please verify that your SMTP server settings are correct
and try again, or contact the server administrator.

However I can telnet to the port 25 just fine ... bizarre.
