I don't know much about the new RedHat distribution, but it sounds as if
may be running smrsh -- sendmail restricted shell.  smrsh limits what
sendmail will run to a list of files within a certain directory, usually

/var/adm/sm.bin.  I'd do a 'man smrsh' and see what directory it uses 
(assuming that this is the problem), then go into that directory and do

   ln -s /home/mailman/mail/wrapper 

as root.
