edit manually file sendmail.cf


nano -w /etc/mail/sendmail.cf


replace line Fw/etc/mail/local-host-names with line
Fw-o /etc/mail/local-host-names
identically (if you got the same error for trusted-users)


Ft/etc/mail/trusted-users
with line Ft-o /etc/mail/trusted-users
i spent 4 hours to see that. if you rebuild sendmail.cf from sendmail.mc you can modify the last file (sendmail.mc) to suit your needs


i recommend to you to use webmin (install with yum) for simpler sendmail administration
