Sick sendmail on Solaris 2.3

Sick sendmail on Solaris 2.3

Hi.  I'm configuring a solaris 2.3 machine running NIS, and I'm having a
* problem with sendmail.  It's not accepting mail from our mail server,
and it's having problems resolving aliases.  Following is output from
a telnet to the mail port on the machine in question:

21 % telnet io 25
Trying 131.181.2.13 ...
Connected to io.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 io.fit.qut.edu.au Sendmail 5.0/SMI-SVR4 ready at Mon, 31 Jan 1994 16:25:39 --1000

451 root... can't access alias via name service "nis"
250 <root>
quit
221 io.fit.qut.edu.au closing connection
Connection closed by foreign host.

Following is the script of an attempt to mail root at the machine:

Has anyone encountered this problem before?  It's driving me nuts!

Thanks in advance,
