sendmail oddity?

I recently installed RH9, my first linux install and have been making progress. When looking through the system log at sendmail I encountered sent/received messages that didn't quite look right to me, beginning here at Oct27 10:40:39--the h9RFedJC003568 mssg.

Oct 27 09:35:08 localhost sendmail[1592]: alias database /etc/aliases rebuilt by root
Oct 27 09:35:08 localhost sendmail[1592]: /etc/aliases: 63 aliases, longest 10 bytes, 625 bytes total
Oct 27 09:35:09 localhost sendmail[1605]: starting daemon (8.12.8): SMTP+queueing@01:00:00
Oct 27 09:35:09 localhost sm-msp-queue[1614]: starting daemon (8.12.8): queueing@01:00:00
Oct 27 10:40:39 localhost sendmail[3568]:h9RFedJc003568: from=root, size=3227, class=0, nrcpts=1, msgid=<200310271540.h9RFedJc003568@localhost.localdomain>, relay=root@localhost
Oct 27 10:40:39 localhost sendmail[3571]: h9RFedq0003571: from=<root@localhost.localdomain>, size=3533, class=0, nrcpts=1, msgid=<200310271540.h9RFedJc003568@localhost.localdomain>, proto=ESMTP, daemon=MTA, relay=localhost.localdomain []
Oct 27 10:40:39 localhost sendmail[3568]: h9RFedJc003568: to=root, ctladdr=root (0/0), delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay, pri=30054, relay=[] [], dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent (h9RFedq0003571 Message accepted for delivery)
Oct 27 10:40:40 localhost sendmail[3572]: h9RFedq0003571: to=<root@localhost.localdomain>, ctladdr=<root@localhost.localdomain> (0/0), delay=00:00:01, xdelay=00:00:01, mailer=local, pri=33770, dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent

I haven't used mail on the system nor opened the email program. The logs for the previous two days that the system had been installed show nothing like this. Does someone know what this may be?
