Keep the Usenet on the Usenet.
Then find the actual path to sendmail on your system and set this
important environment variable either in your ~/.bash_profile or
your /etc/profile or in your ~/.bashrc (if this file is sourced
in your ~/.bash_profile: source ~/.bashrc or . ~/.bashrc
That's crazy. Are you SURE you are running sendmail?
(that name is used for files that are a symbolic link to other MTAs
when they are installed instead of the actual sendmail program.)
$ whereis sendmail
$ which sendmail
Then try postfix and exim
