Misconfiguration . Sendmail can't correctly identify the HOSTNAME  of the
computer that it's running .

As soon as sendmail has finished everything is normal.

Well not entirely , sendmail is using the short name , which might create problems
when you try to sent an email to the outer world .

Well i would choose /etc/hosts for this occassion . Well since /etc/host.conf says
hosts,bind of course .

 /etc/hosts:

127.0.0.1    localhost.localdomain    localhost
192.168.1.100            EPO-xp
>192.168.1.105   epowork
>192.168.1.125 epohost


EEE ???? What's this . Apart from the first line all the others are wrong .
In the second column you have to put the "FQDN" ( sort of speaking ) in other words the hostname.domainname thing and in the third column the alliases for example

192.168.1.100         EPO-xp.localdomain   EPO

 /etc/sysconfig/network:
NETWORKING=yes
>HOSTNAME=localhost

Again the above line should read
HOSTANME=localhost.localdomain , in order to be correct or in your occassion
for example :

HOSTNAME=epohost.localdomain
