I have installed Slackware linux in my machine. While
booting it takes more than 3 min to Start the sendmail
daemons. After that it works as usual. Who to rectify it??

I think this has to do with sendmail trying to resolve names on your network, which you most likely don't have set up yet. Try running netconfig to give your machine another hostname, etc. See if that gets rid of the pause.

Your network is not setup properly.
You need DNS for sendmail (as swwelsh said).

Hi,

If you use sendmail at home, you probably won't need the 'full' config. Try the .cf file that makes sendmail relay all outgoing mail through a 'smart' host: your provider's SMTP server. Make sure that all hostnames you refer to are in /etc/hosts.
