sendmail 8.13 how not to start client

Hello,
I have upgraded 8.11 sendmail to 8.13 on HP-UX itanium 11.23.

I noticed that there is a new startup script that is trying to start sendmail and client.
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root sys 42 Jun 18 16:30 sendmail -> /usr/contrib/sendmail/sbin/init.d/sendmail

I do not have submit.cf and it was never configured. sendmail starts OK, but client fails.
How can I disable the client startup. Can I use old sendmail startup script that came with version 8.11?
Thank you.

You've posted this in a Linux forum, not in
an HP-UX forum, which would be more
appropriate.

Upgraded how? (Built from source? Installed
some depot from somewhere? ...?)

At least one of us is confused. I don't know
what "start sendmail and client" means. If
you don't wish to run the server, then remove
its start-up script.

You may be ahead of me. I don't even know
what "submit.cf" is.

This might be more interesting if we knew
where it was.
