Greetings Rick;

Sendmail is using the Sendmail Restricted Shell (smrsh) to execute programs, and you must have the proper symbolic links established to the hypermail executable, or else use a non-restricted shell for program execution..

The solution I provided in actually is more applicable to your situation than the one I addressed in the email.
