    I recently installed a fileserver which is restricted to the internal
    network and which I refer to simply as 'fileserver' (pretty creative,
    right).

    However, sendmail doesn't seem to work correctly. When the machine boots
    and/or I try and send an email using sendmail, I get a bunch of cryptic
    error messages. Here's a view of the syslog:

    root@fileserver# tail /var/log/messages
    Nov 29 13:51:56 fileserver sm-mta[386]: My unqualified host name
    (fileserver) unknown; sleeping for retry
    Nov 29 13:52:56 fileserver sm-mta[386]: unable to qualify my own domain name
    (fileserver) -- using short name
    Nov 29 13:52:57 fileserver sm-msp-queue[390]: My unqualified host name
    (fileserver) unknown; sleeping for retry
    Nov 29 13:53:57 fileserver sm-msp-queue[390]: unable to qualify my own
    domain name (fileserver) -- using short name
    ...
    Nov 29 13:56:43 fileserver sendmail[565]: My unqualified host name
    (fileserver) unknown; sleeping for retry
    Nov 29 13:57:43 fileserver sendmail[565]: unable to qualify my own domain
    name (fileserver) -- using short name
    ...

    Can anyone please help me?
