Cool sendmail - Solaris 10, can't send mail to a specific user on the system


when I run the command "echo `hostname`| mail username"
the command completed successfully because I get a "0" when I run "echo $?" but it doesn't create the mail box for it


and when I run "svcs -a | grep sendmail" I get

Code:
bash-3.2# svcs -a | grep sendmail
online         14:52:28 svc:/network/sendmail-client:default
maintenance    14:56:29 svc:/network/smtp:sendmail
now every time I bring it online it goes back to:

Code:
"maintenance    14:56:29 svc:/network/smtp:sendmail"
What do I do about this

Can you try to disable/enable the service once:-
Code:
~# svcadm disable svc:/network/smtp:sendmail
~# svcadm enable svc:/network/smtp:sendmail
~# svcs -a | grep sendmail
Also what's status of process?
Code:
ps -ef | grep sendmail
