sendmail: stat=Deferred: Can't assign requested address



greetings all,

firstly, i am not subscribed, please cc: responces, appreciated.

i have been using freebsd v2.2.5-release (as my domains mx host
on a 486dx33 .. that was upgraded after 20 years running with 6
years on v2.2.5  to a p5-133 mhz into which i moved teh whole scsi
harddisk ssubsystem (card and drives) ther it ran v 2.2.5-r
faultlessly untill last january when i cleaned of teh hard
drives reformated averything and installed freebsd v6.2-release
!!

than after a few weeks of settling down and setting up every
thing worked well, as expected, then the sendmail nightmares
started ... basically the system could not send mail anywhere
!!!

cutting long story short, it was basically my having to relearn
teh whole universe .. there were more differences  than i had
planned for and it was an uphill battle relearning essentially
everything i had learned about freebsd over th previous ten
years.

about 3 weeks ago things started to make sence, herebouts,
slowly it is clearing up, as i started to understand sendmail
and getting teh configurations right .. most of teh poorly
configured hosts i've now cleaned up and are working properly,
but, one ...

i have now got one left and like teh linux chappie who i found
on google who had a similar "out of teh blue experience" like
mine, (about 2003) one day sendmail worked then teh veyr next it was
defereing everytingh .. just like here. this chappie had
replaced his nic, i've not done angthiny like that hppen here,
the machine is the machine and no hardware has been changed ??

i donot understand what is going on here .. i've included all
teh differnt bits in teh maillog file

here is teh /var/log/maillog exerpt

this last entry was the resutl of teh post test after adding

'SMART_HOST' 'mail.caamora.com.au'
in teh freebsd.mc/sendmail.mc and a 'make install' to cover all
bases.

i treied to restart teh mailqueue ... no luck .. grrr

 and then an entry into the mailertable

. esmpt:mail.caamora.com.au

again did the make whatever thingie and ... tried to post,
again this defered post business .. can't asign ..

there is something going on here that i donot understand ..
some enlightenment would be appreciated, please.

the few bits i found in yahoosearch engine, google resfuses me
access still but yahoo i can use. i looked uo the error message
and turned up this one endrt refereing to teh linux incedent, i
have a copy of bat book ed 1 it just says it exists, same for
smart_host mail_hub macros.

is there some way to fix this short of upgrading and mvoing to
postfix ?? i don't have teh needed stuff to do that just yet
(me and hardware issues)

it looks like i've missed somethings but i don't know enough
about freebsd v6.x to know even where to start to look for this
one .. aside from this  i have another v6.2 host that also was
doing the same thing but after i copied a working set of
sendmail configs and restarted sendmail it work properly except
teh it dosent forward the "charlie root" mail from teh
maintenece events (at 2 am. 3 am and 4 am from teh /etc/cron
events) the mail itesm just sit in teh /var/mail/root folder

it has taken me just under 6 mnths to get this far, i've come
to teh end of my rope and am seriously thinking of going back
to freebsd v2.2.5 .. 
 
regards/appreciations/much graciousnessess
