Sorry about this, yet another question about sendmail...

I've spent days on this, read stacks of docs and just can not get it to work!
It sends some emails...  But others it rejects.
Please, if you know of any tutorials on how to set this stuff up, please
tell me!  
If you think you may be able to set it up for me using webmin, I will make
you a temporary account.  I just need it fixed!  By any means!

Thankyou so much for your help, this has frustrated me for too long now!!!


P.S.  Below is the error dump from sendmail.

Sorry about the downtime people, been doing some serious renovations.  I can't tell 
you about them now, I'll post a link to a page with all the appropriate information on 
it later, maybe in a day or so.

Thanks for your patience, it is greatly appreciated!
