Yes, sendmail is running.

No, I didn't say that (because sendmail.cf exists), I just said that
with "grep smrsh /etc/mail/sendmail.cf", I'm getting nothing with grep,
so, "smrsh" isn't in this file.

Yes, I think it's just a problem with sendmail (or with mailman).

Ok, if I don't manage to fixe the problem, I'll ask for helping on the
debian mailing list.
