sendmail local mailer problem
 
when I execute " /sbin/service sendmail restart"
I get this error

Starting sendmail: 554 5.0.0 No local mailer defined
554 5.0.0 QueueDirectory (Q) option must be set
[FAILED]
Starting sm-client: [ OK ]

I use mandrake 10.0
I assign this
define(`QUEUE_DIR','/var/spool/mqueue')dnl
define('LOCAL_MAILER_PATH','/usr/bin/procmail')dnl

then I execute the program, I get the same error message again

can anyone please help

In your onfig file, you should have 2 lines included:

MAILER(smtp)dnl
MAILER(procmail)dnl

These define th local mailer you seem to be lacking .... give it a try.
