Ok, I just gotta say this. This is sus-security, and you want to run
*sendmail*?! Huh? What was once the leading source of server
vulnerabilities? Why not switch to Postfix right now?

If you must run Sendmail, you likely want to protect it with something
like AppArmor. SUSE Pro 9.1 and SLES9 are the oldest editions that will
support AppArmor.
