Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I've scoured the Internet for answers but none presented have helped.
I've installed a vanilla version of Red Hat Linux 9 plus security updates. When starting Sendmail i get the following:
No local mailer defined
QueueDirectory (Q) option must be set
This happens no matter what I do. The sendmail.cf file exists in /etc/mail and I can make changes to the sendmail.mc file and create new sendmail.cf files until I bleed. No changes I've seen so far have worked. It should be running off the line.
It should be set up to only send out mail from the localhost only. It's a hosting box so no incoming mail is allowed...yet so all incoming should be blocked by the ipchains.
If anyone has run into this issue, please let me know. I have 3 boxes now that have the same problem and have no clue why it's happening. Here's the basic sendmail.mc file I'm using.
Here's what the sendmail.cf says about the queuedirectory:
# queue directory
It does exist. I've tried everything i can think of. I've redone the sendmail.cf file several times trying to use procmail, local, smtp and it always creates a sendmail.cf file so it does exist (which is a good thing).
Thanks everyone for your help. The solution was quite simple and thanks to a nice man at sendmail he found it in short order. The problem was the submit.cf file was zero. When I updated the RPM for a security fix, it moved the submit.cf. After renaming the .rpmnew version and reloading it works like a charm.
