Hey ,

I am running rancid 2.3 downloaded from the shrew berry website (latest 
stable build) . I have managed to configure almost everything for our HP 
Procurve switches and have managed to build the CVS repo and CVS web. 
rancid-run works perfectly fine . However , i am facing issues with 
making rancid use sendmail to notify us about the diffs made .  my 
/etc/aliases file looks something like this
rancid-Switches: ouremail at domian.com
The LIST_OF_GROUPS is defined as Switches in the rancid.conf file . Post 
that i ran *sudo newaliases* to initialise the sendmail db . Made a 
small change in one of the routers and then did a rancid-run but the 
logs indicate

home/rancid/var/CVS/Switches/configs/IP_addr v  <--  configs/IP addr
new revision: 1.5; previous revision: 1.4
/home/rancid/bin/control_rancid: 477: sendmail: not found

Any help would be appreciated :)
