That is what is in the syslog file

Is there an actual question here? I'm guessing you really want to know WHY it's adding

Nobody here can tell you, because you don't include any useful information.

What have you checked? What steps have you taken so far?

When you say the mail server "receives" a mail, where? Internally? Externally? The log extract you show would indicate that your mail server is trying to send a mail out to rather than receive it.

Check whatever the Solaris equivalent of resolv.conf is, you may find that something in there is appending as a search domain and somewhere along the way your DNS resolution is broken.

Correct this is my question.
Well the problem when it receives a mail externaly. It receives it correct but when the mail delivered to the user very often at the reply has added the I have made telnet to port 25 to give manually the mail commands. I did the same test 2 times. One mail was ok the second one has problem in the reply.
I checked the I also checked the dns but the site has too many domains that resolvs. I' ll check the DNS again
Thanks for your answer


sendmail, solaris10
