Hello,

I have a FreeBSD 4.8 box, I run it for my local small home network  I
use it as a router. My DSL-modem has a NAT feature, and FreeBSD does not
have any routable ip-address, only the modem does.

My sendmail always complains about the domain name every time I start my
FreeBSD, and the system is hanging for 2 minutes, until the sendmail
finally starts. What I want to do, is to keep my own sendmail (I use it
as my smtp-server), but I do not want the system to wait 2 minutes until
the sendmail starts. What can I do?

In /var/log/maillog I have:
Jul 24 12:46:59 cnst sm-mta[99]: My unqualified host name (cnst)
unknown; sleeping for retry
Jul 24 12:47:59 cnst sm-mta[99]: unable to qualify my own domain name
(cnst) -- using short name

In /var/log/messages I have:
