Your hosting company should be able to tell you the path to sendmail. Most hosting companies do not offer support for third party scripts/programs. Therefore, contacting the author of the script would likely be the best method of assistance with their script/program.

Typically sendmail is in one of the three locations.
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. /usr/bin/sendmail 
  2. /usr/sbin/sendmail
  3. /usr/lib/sendmail
