something wrong with proftpd and sendmail

I'm a newbie in Linux but i manage to make my webserver with a Linux distribution package. I've several websites and most of them are almost static exept for the fact that there is a form in everyone of this websites. The idea is to save some disk space in my paid host.
Everything was running fine till i install Proftpd. Now the script that deals with the forms does not send the email but redirects to the thanks page.
The maillog give me the following report.

Feb 27 12:13:34 example sendmail[7312]: m1RCDYe6007312: from=nobody, size=510, class=0, nrcpts=1, msgid=<200802271213.m1RCDYe6007312@example.example.com>, relay=nobody@localhost

Feb 27 12:13:34 example sendmail[7312]: m1RCDYe6007312: to=example@example.com, ctladdr=nobody (99/99), delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay, pri=30510, relay=[127.0.0.1] [127.0.0.1], dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent (m1RCDYjC007313 Message accepted for delivery)
Feb 27 12:13:35 example sm-mta[7315]: m1RCDYjC007313: to=<example@example.com>, delay=00:00:01, xdelay=00:00:01, mailer=esmtp, pri=120770, relay=example.com. [67.15.50.zz], dsn=4.0.0, stat=Deferred: Connection refused by example.com.

There is nothing in secure and messages log.
Since i'm a newbie i can not understand what is wrong and why the email is not accepted.
Can somebody help me please!?

Can somebody give me a hint how to interpret the log.
Since i've deleted old maillogs, I'm not sure but i believe that the lines "warning: /etc/hosts.allow" and "warning: /etc/hosts.deny" were in those old records and the sendmail was working fine.
