Sendmail uses the system calls to resolve names.  You need to check:

In that file check the hosts line, this gives the order for hostname resolution, typically it is files then dns.

Then you should check your /etc/hosts file to be sure that localhost is there and correct.

Also check /etc/resolve.conf that you have the correct nameservers for dns lookups.


Thanks, I look into all your suggestions. I think I have gone through this before but I do not install OS's often enough to remember these details. I also have so many books on Unix and related subjects, networking, dns, etc etc that I forget where to
find the answer.
