Chris,


I am really enjoying your articles. This is great information presented very well.


I'm having trouble with sendmail after taking the steps in part two. Specifically, anytime I send mail via the CLI mail program, I get these two messages on the console:


Feb 28 21:34:31 localhost sendmail[1019]: My unqualified host name (localhost) unknown; sleeping for retry


Feb 28 21:35:31 localhost sendmail[1019]: unable to qualify my own domain name (localhost) -- using short name


The mail seems to go through, and all other functions of sendmail seem to work, but nevertheless, the error messages are occurring.


Thank You,
Bill
