A better soloution to this problem (which is wide spread) is to edit your /System/Library/StartupItems/Sendmail/StartupParameters.plist

Where it says "OrderPreference" type "Last" like this :

OrderPreference = "Last";

So my StartupParameters.plist looks like this :

Description = "Sendmail mail server";
Provides = ("SMTP");
Requires = ("DirectoryServices");
Uses = ("Disks", "Network Time", "NFS");
OrderPreference = "Last";

This should work as it worked for me (running 10.2.6)

All this does is it tells the OS to start sendmail after it has started all the apps in "Uses" and "Requires".

Hope this has helped
