SendMail DNS: Service unavailable

I'm trying to get sendmail working after following the tutorial below:

Everything went OK, but my mail is still not getting through. The only thing I can see in my /var/log/maillog file that could be screwing things up is

DNS: Service unavailable

everytime I send a mail. I thought DNS would have sorted itself out from the DHCP. Does anyone know what is going on?

Well I've just come back to it after changing nothing and now it's working. Bizarre!
