first find your mail program
find / -type f -name mail
then assuming /bin/mail doesn't exist, link it with.
ln -s /path/to/mail /bin/mail
This will create a symbolic link (a shortcut) from your mail program to /bin
If you do have a /bin/mail, do a
ls -l
to see its permissions

the "mail" program is not part of sendmail, is in a separate archive normally mailx
