  Looks like your sendmail might be configured to use "smrsh", which
prevents it from running programs that aren't in a particular
directory, and "/usr/bin" isn't that particular directory.

  You probably want to look at your sendmail configuration, and either
copy mailpost into the directory that smrsh allows (the more secure
solution), or disable smrsh altogether.

  If you run into other problems like this, you might want to try a
sendmail mailing list or newsgroup (like comp.mail.sendmail).

  Good luck,
