Are you logging in on the system console, or remotely?

What is the output of ps -ef | grep [s]endmail?

svcadm disable sendmail


add your FQDN to /etc/inet/hosts

PS: if you *read* the error messages instead of just acknowledging that there was an error that usually helps troubleshooting Smilie

No need to disable sendmail..
just add hostname. in the hosts file
