sendmail failing to activate

Posted September 1, 2013 1.8k views
New server built, Fedora 17 x64. For some reason the sendmail service will not start. i am not super familar with Linux, I know enough to get a LAMP set up configured. Not sure where to look to find the problem.

tail /var/log/maillog
