Yes, look in the file for the line (about line number 268) which
looks like:

Mlocal, P=/bin/lmail, F=lsDFMhumSU, S=10, R=20, A=lmail -s $u
If you check out your sendmail.ocf file you will see that the U didn't exist
in the Mlocal line.  If you comment out that line and re-type it without
the U (or just change it and and hope you remember you took it out :-)
then that should fix your problems.
