I had the basically the same problem after "upgrading" to
sendmail-8.12.10-1.1.1 on fedora, with the same error while attempting
to sendmail through mozilla, though my "usual" mail worked fine. I
messed around for awhile and can only think it was an unwanted compile
option. For now, I fixed the problem by migrating back to
sendmail-8.12.8-9.90 from redhat 9. If anyone finds a better
solution, I'ld be happy to hear it.
