To turn off Sendmail.

change directory "cd /etc/rc3.d"
use mv to rename the start up file for sendmail. Change XX to match the
number used to start sendmail. i.e. mv S05sendmail K05sendamil  So S is to
start the service at boot. the number is what order to start the service. K
is to Kill at shutdown.

cd /etc/rc3.d/
mv SXXsendmail KXXsendmail

You still need your DNS settings.

Sendmail is trying to resolve your computers hostname via your DNS and the
hosts.conf file. So if you use Google's 8.8.8.8 DNS server or any DNS
server and you don't have a registered domain with a "A" record that
matched your computer hostname sendmail will have to time out at start up.

If you are using DHCP to get an IP address then edit ifcfg-ethX and add or
change this line DHCP_HOSTNAME=*"hostname"* .  DHCP_HOSTNAME tells your
dhcp server what name to use for the local DNS. So if you have a good
router then this will work.

Use your text editor  /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

So on my ACID install sendmail to set to start after the network gets an IP
address. This is good. S10network S80sendmail
