    the /bin/mail or /sbin/mail has been solved by installing yum install mailx.

    about /etc/init.d/sendmail nothing, but i have read from others that try to use this "/etc/init.d/exim".

    [[email protected] ~]#rpm -q sendmail
    package sendmail is not installed
    [[email protected] ~]#rpm -qa | grep sendmail
    [[email protected] ~]#

    By installing Cpanel, they do provide exim mail service along with cpanel. And it will be good to run exim as mail service, and it will be easily get updated to the latest versions, with a single command

    /scripts/eximup --force

    Do you want to run sendmail even though exim is there?
    If so,
    run this command.
    m4 /etc/mail/sendmail.mc > /etc/mail/sendmail.cf
    service sendmail restart.
