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
