Description of problem:
Just after a RedHat 8.0 new installation, the system auto reboot. The sendmail
and sm-client service started "OK".

Stop the sendmail service:- service sendmail stop

Subsequently, I do a up2date <sendmail package> to update from sendmail-8.12.5-7
to latest release Up2date of sendmail when successful.

Restart the sendmail service: service sendmail start

Starting sendmail       [OK]
Startiing sm-client: No local mailer defines
QueueDirectory (Q) option must be set     [FAILED]

The problem still persist, even I tried removing sendmail by service sendmail
stop then rpm -e --nodeps sendmail- and reinstall the sendmail-8.12.5-7. 


I update sendmail with rpm -ivh sendmail- instead of up2date program.   

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
