yeah there is. edit /etc/hosts and add a name and IP address for your
computer. You can probably do this with the redhat network admin
tool, ie add a name for your pc.
if the pc is standalone configure a second loopback (lo..)
network device for the ip you put in hosts. If it's on a network,
make sure IP address you added above is the right one.
the reason for all this is cause sendmail can't find it's own IP
