Sendmail can't recieve mail!


I'm running an old Fedora Core 3 box, and I've got the standard LAMP + Sendmail setup, but I'm having troubles with Sendmail. (I have for quite a while now)

Whenever I send a message to an email address on my server, I get:
Quote:
----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
<sam@ashensky.com>
(reason: 553 5.3.5 system config error)

----- Transcript of session follows -----
553 5.3.5 ashensky.com. config error: mail loops back to me (MX problem?)
554 5.3.5 Local configuration error
550 5.1.1 postmaster... User unknown
along with some additional horror stories :s

I'm using cyrus-imapd for my imap/smtp stuff, and I don't know if thats related or not.

Also, if anyways has time, can they tell me if theres a way to upgrade to php5 without losing all the programs installed while under php4?

Try adding your hostname.servername.com in your /etc/mail/local-host-names

Ah well I figured that file you shouldn't be blank

Yes, it did work. For some reason my webmail interface isn't working right but I can read the manual for that. Thanks.
