If you are under Linux, you should assure that the Sendmail Daemon are running by type the following command:
nmap -sT localhost
You should see
...
25/tcp open smtp
...

If not, make Sendmail Daemon run by typping:
/etc/rc.d/init.d/sendmail start
hoac
/etc/rc.d/init.d/sendmail restart
(type rpm -qc snedmail for other information)

If you are under Window, you should have an smtp running on another machine (linux) and do some other configs

Hope that help!
