  Configuring sendmail on Jaguar

Anyone else having problems with sendmail after having it patched with Security update 2003-03-03?


I can't get local mail to get sent locally. That is, before the update, my crontab jobs would mail their results to root@localhost, which would forward it to the unix mail account of a user (me), which I would then pick up via IMAP running locally.


Now, the mail doesn't stay local. It either gets sent out to a mail server on my local net (if my computer has a hostnam that can be extended into a valid domain), or I get an error message (delivered locally!) that the sending domain isn't valid so the mail won't be sent.


Embarrasingly, this was discovered by the SysAdmin of my local network, who was receiving my mail sent to his root instead of mine. :(


Any suggestions how to keep the mail local?
