it's probably not actually stopped, it's timed out, which happens when sendmail can not resolve the local host name. did you try changing it or something? check the /etc/hosts file for a line such as localhost localhost.localdomain

you can insert your correct domain name before the first localhost entry, or set it using the "hostname" command. this is normamly enough to make sendmail get on with it. if not leave it for fivce minutes and check what sendmail has said in "dmesg" output or /var/log/messages

personally when I ran redhat I would run ntsysv and turn off sendmail.

Redhat likes to run alot of useless programs on startup, go through the list i'm sure there are some others you don't need that are running sucking up memory.

ntsysv if I remember right is in /sbin/ or /usr/sbin/, just run it in a console window.
