Sendmail Problem

Hi
when i look under /var/adm/syslog/mail.log i get the following error and this keeps repeating:
Jan 22 12:34:24 zfsbmst1 sendmail[1077]: gethostbyaddr(10.30.7.26) failed: 1
Jan 22 12:36:22 zfsbmst1 sendmail[2439]: gethostbyaddr(10.30.7.26) failed: 1

i have done a sendmail -q -v and also deleted two messages from /var/spool/mqueue but if i do a mail -q | more i get the following error :

Warning: Too many letters, overflowing letters concatenated

Could anyone please advise.

Regards

Re: Sendmail Problem

Check your /etc/hosts for name lookup of zfsbmst1

I find that adding something like the following gets rid of my sendmail bothers:

1.2.3.4 zfsbmst1 zfsbmst1.
where the zfsbmst1. is and alias

senmail seems to want a domain..

Anyway, probably nothing got to do with it...

Later,
Bill
It works for me (tm)
