Sendmail bounces multiple mails on send

Mail/Proxy machine running sendmail-8.9.3-20 refuses lan users from
sending multiple mails (approx 10 or more).
Sendmail has been configured using linuxconf. Does the followin advisory
I would personally never use linuxconf/mailconf to configure something as mission critical as sendmail.
The logic is simple, sendmail.org always recommends using M4 to build a cf file, additionally with the 8.10
series you can define local_rulesets within the mc file and still have M4 build a good cf file.
Linuxconf has it's uses, but considering the number of packages it tries to manage and the fact that these
packages come out at different times means that linuxconf will always play catchup and cause some
problems in critical packages such as dns,sendmail,samba.
I do not speak on behalf of RedHat.
