Re: Sendmail error

I haven't configured sendmail in recent
years, so I know nothing, but ...

Basic system info?

uname -a

> However, from past 15 days, [...]

What changed?

> (shahcorp) -- using short name

So, "shahcorp" is the name of this system?
What's in its "/etc/hosts" file? DNS?

nslookup shahcorp

> be sure to set domain name in Dj macro in sendmail.cf

Is there a "Dj" macro definition in your
"sendmail.cf" file?

A Web search (Google, ...) or a Forum search
here for the error message ("unable to
qualify my own domain name") should find many
old discussions of this problem. (Throw in
"sendmail" and/or "hp-ux" to narrow the
search.)
