    If you go to the Sendmail module in Webmin, at the bottom of
    the page does it show a button labelled 'Start Sendmail' ?
    Also, does the file /var/run/sendmail.pid exist on your
    system, and if so does the process ID that it contains
    actually exist?

    Sorry, i forget one more detail, i have installed MailScanner,
    for that i know always sendmail looks down in sendamil
    configuration module, but in webmin 1.210 in System and
    Server Status module looks Up, but the problems appears
    after update to webmin 1.230 when look DOWN in the
    System and Server Status Module. In /var/run/*** I have:

    -rw------- 1 root smmsp 151 Sep 22 16:29 sendmail.in.pid
    -rw------- 1 root smmsp 67 Sep 22 16:29 sendmail.out.pid

    I hope this info will helpful.

    Thanks

    John

    Ok, it looks like that change in the PID file location by
    mailscanner is the cause of the problem. To fix this, go to
    the Sendmail module, click on Module Config and set the
    'Full path to sendmail pid file' to /var/run/sendmail.in.pid
