I checked lppchk and everything seems good and also errpt I see no errors, Then why is my sendmail saying there is an "Operating system error"

"sendmail -bp" displays the mail queue.

Seems you have an entry there with SMTP ID s1INBxOt51184602 which could not be delivered due to a (probably temporary) OS error.

So it's not an actual error but something historical (from yesterday?)

Is the date shown always the same? If so this would confirm my assumption.

Go to /var/spool/mqueue and look for the failing message (should be just one in that directory) and delete it, then retry.
