Doug, Mats

Your advice is on the money; thanks.

I see this:

Jun 10 05:43:40 jake sendmail[15068]: l5AAhekD015068:
[EMAIL PROTECTED], ctladdr=oracle
(1004/1005),
delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay,
pri=30062,
relay=[127.0.0.1] [127.0.0.1], dsn=4.0.0,
stat=Deferred: Connection
refused by [127.0.0.1]

Your tip along with that given by Mats suggests that
I need to learn about /etc/mail/sendmail.cf 

It appears that the box cannot send mail to itself:

Jun 10 03:05:44 jake sendmail[14546]: l5A84ObZ014546:
to=postmaster,
delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay,
pri=154501,
relay=[127.0.0.1], dsn=4.0.0, stat=Deferred:
Connection refused by
[127.0.0.1]

to=root,
ctladdr=root (0/0), delay=6+00:00:26, xdelay=00:00:00,
mailer=relay,
pri=691450, relay=[127.0.0.1], dsn=4.0.0,
stat=Deferred: Connection

Jun 10 03:05:44 jake sendmail[14546]: l5485I55093939:
l5A84Oba014546:
sender notify: Cannot send message for 5 days

Jun 10 03:05:44 jake sendmail[14546]: l5A84Oba014546:
to=root,
delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay,
pri=152806,
relay=[127.0.0.1], dsn=4.0.0, stat=Deferred:
Connection refused by
[127.0.0.1]

Currently, my main assumption is that 
/etc/mail/sendmail.cf 
is the primary administrative interface for e-mail.

I'll nose around via google.
