Are you using Network Manager?

If so, I had that problem until I stopped using it.  It didn't get the
network up and running in time, when sendmail fires up, and sendmail
never recovers.

An alternative would be to put a restart script into the Network Manager
Dispatcher directory.  That way sendmail will be restarted any time the
network goes down and up.  A smart script would check whether it should
restart a running service, or do nothing to a deliberately stopped

[tim at localhost ~]$ uname -r

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
