Unhappy They said: Welcome to Sendmail Hell?

I've installed a sendmail 8.12.9 compiled from source on my RH 9.0 Server. Installations came very smooth and without problem. However, testing it produces the following errors on my logs:

#mail root ----this is what I did why the logs were written out.
