Check your DNS settings and make sure that they are correct.

Assuming you are running sendmail (the default mail transfer agent), you need a valid /etc/sendmail.cf  config file.  You can edit this file by hand (not recommended), or use some other higher-level tool (like linuxconf).

Also, as the first comment indicated, dns has to be set up correctly too.
