    Doesn't the PID file /etc/sendmail.pid exist on AIX?
    All other unixes have a pid file for sendmail, and it
    is simpler for webmin to use the same method for checking
    if sendmail is running on all operating systems.

    Seemed to be an AIX Bug, there was no sendmail.pid.
    stopping sendmail ; touch /etc/sendmail.pid
    starting sendmail
    resolved this problem
