Are you using the version of Sendmail installed by FC6 ?

You have to configure sendmail.cf in the /etc/mail folder
telling Sendmail where your mail folders are.

I have been using Sendmail for a number of years but I prefer to download
build install and configure it myself. Unless you like abuse and punishment
stay away from the google Sendmail group - they eat newbies for breakfast.
