What I did was to add a entry to the host file on my dns server/cache
on my gateway... v42.<gateway hostname>

I no longer get the error. I now get one about unusual system

May 14 13:31:21 v42 sm-mta[826]: i4EIVLJS000826:
from=<root at v42.<gateway hostname>>, size=2010,
class=0, nrcpts=1,
msgid=<200405141802.i4EI2UjB000640 at v42.<gateway hostname>>,
proto=ESMTP, daemon=MTA, relay=localhost. []

The topic and from and to are...

From: kit <root at v42.<gateway hostname>>
To: root at v42.<gateway hostname>
Subject: v42.<gateway hostname> 05/14/04:14.00 system

Not really sure if this is a sendmail problem or not here... :/

BTW know of any good tutorials or any good reads I can find online for

This box orginally had log sentry on it too, which appears to have
screwed up some of the periodic stuff too...

What is the easiest way to get back to what defualt periodic security
checks and ect?
