Sendmail and sm-client slow on startup!

They start very slowly? Do i have to change anything in /etc/hosts file? What should hosts file exactly look like?

/etc/hosts describes machines without nameservers; it will list the loopback device of also. It has nothing to do with loading times of programs like sendmail.
