Thumbs down Sendmail Help

I am currently using a spam program on Linux 8. THe spam program occasionally uses sendmail to email me messages about certain spam messages. Problem is I don't receive these messages. This is the error I get when I try to empty the queue with the following command : sendmail -v -q -Ac

[root@spamman sbin]# /usr/sbin/sendmail -v -q -Ac
Running /var/spool/clientmqueue/h7QIuKp4005005 (sequence 1 of 1) Connecting to [localhost] via relay... Host unknown (Name server: [localhost]: host not found) Host unknown (Name server: [localhost]: host not found)
postmaster... Host unknown (Name server: [localhost]: host not found)
savemail: cannot save rejected email anywhere

PLease help if you can. I can ping and resolve the mail server and MX records no problem. Dns seems to be working...
Any suggestions?? ----------------->Keith
