Interesting - you didn't answer a single one of the questions I asked.

Since you're playing with sendmail.cf it appears you're using sendmail.

First off: You do not run sendmail.cf by typing it at command line - that is why you got all the "not found" messages. You tried to run it as if it were a script rather than a configuration file. You can ignore all that output due to that.

Second: You did run it the second time and it says it did send. However since I don't know what you were trying to send I can't comment on it.

Third: You're doing things the hard way. If you use something like mail or mailx to send the mail you should then be able to examile /var/log/maillog to see what happened. You can also examine /var/spool/mqueue to see if you're message is still there.
