ls -l /usr/sbin/sendmail

do you see the permissions as -r-sr-sr-t ?

if not

chmod 7555 /usr/sbin/sendmail

order shall return...

Thanks for the quick responses.
This is what i did to fix the problem:

copied /etc/mail/sendmail.cf to /etc/mail/sendmail.cf.orig

o Used the gen_cf utility to regenerate config file (sendmail.cf) Create User and Queue

cd /usr/newconfig/etc/mail/cf/cf
./gen_cf

copied submit.cf.gen /etc/mail/submit.cf


copied sendmail.cf.gen /etc/mail/sendmail.cf

modified sendmail.cf to to reflect correct mail relay and domain

Killed sendmail with killsm

restarted sendmail from /sbin/init.d/sendmail
