Hello,
I'm running sendmail on 3 pc under Sco Unix V4.2R3.2.
I've a problem with 1:
I can send mail to others, but when I receive one, it goes on /usr/spool/mqueue.
If I edit this file I can see a line:

MDeferred: Host Name Lookup Failure

What's the problem ?
All others services (ftp, telnet, rcp, ...) run well on this machine.

Thank's.

Your sendmail.cf file is not configured correctly. Determine
what you are using for name resolution and uncomment (or add)
the appropriate line to the sendmail.cf file.
