I had the entry ALL:ALL in hosts.deny so that everything would be
restricted except for what is allowed in hosts.allow.  All I did was to
erase the ALL:ALL in the hosts.deny file so that in effect it is empty.

I plan to do some more work with this before I am finished.  I do not
understand why that made a difference because I had localhost
unrestricted in hosts.allow as well as all sendmail unrestriced in
hosts.allow  ie

hosts.allow ->
ALL: localhost : allow
sendmail: ALL: allow

This is the same setup I used for FC4, FC3, and FC1 and I did not have
the problem.
