I still can't figure this whole issue out. I've tried everything
suggested in this thread, including reverting back to the default
sendmail config files.

I created a work-around by just piping all my crontabs into
/usr/bin/mail and sending output using that method. It doesn't solve
it, but it works for now.

Thanks for all the help.
