I encountered this problem before. Below was how I resolved it.

1. Check /etc/hosts and make sure you have proper entries there
for example:

127.0.0.1 localhost
<ip address> your FQDN

2. make sure your hostname has the FQDN as well

3. in your /etc/sendmail.cf, check
Dj<domain name>
DS<your smart host>
DM<domain name>

An example of #3 is:
Djcrap.com
DSsmarthost.mine.com
DMcrap.com

Let me know if that works for you.
