Unhappy php sendmail... HELP!


Im running Fedora Core 4 on a home webserver and need my PHP scripts to be able to use sendmail...

at the moment I get the following error in the root mailbox:

>N 1 MAILER-DAEMON@fedora Thu Jul 28 13:14 85/2753 "Returned mail: see transcript for details"
Message 1:
From MAILER-DAEMON@box.domain Thu Jul 28 13:14:07 2005
Date: Thu, 28 Jul 2005 13:14:07 +0100
From: Mail Delivery Subsystem <MAILER-DAEMON@box.domain>
To: <apache@box.domain>
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: multipart/report; report-type=delivery-status;
Subject: Returned mail: see transcript for details
Auto-Submitted: auto-generated (failure)

This is a MIME-encapsulated message


The original message was received at Thu, 28 Jul 2005 13:14:04 +0100
from box.domain []

----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
(reason: 550-Verification failed for <apache@box.domain>)

how can I configure sendmail to sort out this problem?

many thanks

oops, it also has this:

----- Transcript of session follows -----
... while talking to
>>> DATA
<<< 550-Verification failed for <apache@box.domain>
<<< 550-unrouteable mail domain "box.domain"
<<< 550 Sender verify failed
550 5.1.1 <>... User unknown
<<< 503 valid RCPT command must precede DATA

before displaying the origional message sent by the php script.

I'm guessing im going to have to put the name.domain of my server in the config file somewhere to allow Verification.... But cant find how to do that... []
