if it's not a production server, try this:

find / -name 'sendmail*'

and see what you get. it could very well be in a different spot, or named sendmail.MC, or some other combination of snafus.

good luck!

please run the following commands and post the output of each:

rpm -qa | grep sendmail
find /etc -name 'sendmail*'

This will help us troubleshoot your issue.
