Hi,

the problem here seems to be, your /etc/mail directory is having wrong permission settings

teh default settings are as under:drwxr-xr-x

sendmail is ultra paranoid about the protections on the directories it
uses.  It doesn't trust the configuration if you do things like make
your configuration directory world writable  (source redhat.com )

Cheers
