when evolution tries to send mail: sendmail exited with status 64: mail not sent

Description of problem:
When trying to send mail through sendmail using evolution 1.2.2 on RedHat
9.0, a dialog box pops up saying:
Error while performing operation:
sendmail exited with status 64: mail not sent.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. compose a new mail
2. send it
above error dialog appears. mail does not arrive at destination.
no error dialog and mail should arrive at destination.
I originally filed this bug at:
Jeff Stedfast at Ximian informed me through email that he thought this was a
sendmail bug, thus I am now filing it here since I am using the stock redhat
The command line that evolution is sending to sendmail is:
-i -f EMAILADDRESS --
and when I run /usr/sbin/sendmail -i -f EMAILADDRESS --
directly on the command line, it also exits 64 and does not send any mail.
So, if Jeff is correct, my problem is that sendmail *should* be sending mail
with that command line, but does not.
Seems to work fine for me.
