Sendmail problems


Greetings all,

I am having troubles setting up sendmail to work correctly on a new linux box. The following maillog output is in response to my trying to send a test message to my yahoo email address:

Mar 2 22:46:10 grok sendmail[2619]: j234kAZa002619: from=root, size=49, class=0, nrcpts=1, msgid=<200503030446.j234kAZa002619@localhost.localdomain>, relay=root@localhost

Mar 2 22:46:10 grok sendmail[2620]: j234kAf3002620: from=<root@localhost.localdomain>, size=353, class=0, nrcpts=1, msgid=<200503030446.j234kAZa002619@localhost.localdomain>, proto=ESMTP, daemon=MTA, relay=grok [127.0.0.1]

Mar 2 22:46:10 grok sendmail[2619]: j234kAZa002619: to=myemail@yahoo.com, ctladdr=root (0/0), delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay, pri=30049, relay=[127.0.0.1] [127.0.0.1], dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent (j234kAf3002620 Message accepted for delivery)

Mar 2 22:46:10 grok sendmail[2622]: j234kAf3002620: to=<myemail@yahoo.com>, ctladdr=<root@localhost.localdomain> (0/0), delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay, pri=30353, relay=smtp-server.mycity.rr.com [24.93.40.21], dsn=5.6.0, stat=Data format error

Mar 2 22:46:10 grok sendmail[2622]: j234kAf3002620: j234kAf3002622: DSN: Data format error

Mar 2 22:46:10 grok sendmail[2622]: j234kAf3002622: to=<root@localhost.localdomain>, delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=local, pri=31377, dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent

Any ideas what I have set up wrong?

Stuff in red looks suspicious to me - I THINK those should be of the form "aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd" (someone will correct me if I'm wrong ) - any idea where those are coming from?
