the question is not clear, to use sendmail to send messages you use

sendmail -s "put sublect here username@domain < textfile


I have Openview loaded (NNM 8.10) and if any objects are down, I want to use sendmail to send email notifications to different managers...I would like to know the executable file I can use with sendmail..

You can use sendmail directly, or you can use a mailer agent. Two mail agents are just "mail" and "mailx". But if you are just
sendling mail from script or a configurable command line, then calling sendmall is probably safest.
