I have checked the parameter SENDMAIL_SERVER in /etc/rc.config.d/mailservs, its value is 1. Is there something else I have to check?

One more thing.
Either reboot your box(not needed)
This will enable sendmail to receive mail. It was already capable of sending it.
There are many configuration issues that will impact how you receive mail, but you'll need to do this step before we can work on this.

ps -ef |grep sendmail

ps -ef|grep sendmail
root 1208 1 0 Nov 27 ? 65:17 sendmail: accepting connections on port 25
After that, the command "sendmail start" was executed with the next results:
start... User unknown
During this step, the cursor continue blinking, it could be there is not a valid configuration for sendmail.

However, if it hadn't been started, you'd need to run "/sbin/init.d/sendmail start". Note the fully qualified path. This is the start/stop script that gets run at system boot/halt time. Running "sendmail start" attempts to run the actual sendmail executable in /usr/sbin with argument "start" as the recipient of an email message, which doesn't exist on your system as it complained. You get the "cursor blinking" because it's expecting some input from stdin (the keyboard, in this case) until an end-of-file (Ctrl-D) is entered on a line by itself as the email body.
