The key with sendmail and  samba is to make absolutely sure that
/etc/hosts is set up correct, with your fully-qualified domain name.
Here is what it is set for me:       localhost
206.53.111.blah      erwin

NOTE: you will need to find out the IP address of your network card
and use it for the second line.  Also, use your entire hostname there
(make up a domain name if you don't have one) for the second line.  If 
this doesn't help, send us /etc/hosts, /etc/hostname, /etc/HOSTNAME,
and /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts (whichever you may have; you won't
have all of them) and we can probably help.
