System - FreeBSD 8.0-RELEASE-p1
Sendmail version - ESMTP Sendmail 8.14.3/8.14.3
When started, says that everything is in order
Code:
# cd /etc/mail/
# make start
Starting: sendmail sendmail-clientmqueue.
# ps aux | grep sendmail
root   96972  0.0  0.0 11080  3752  ??  Ss    3:59PM   0:00.00 sendmail: accepting connections (sendmail)
smmsp  96975  0.0  0.0 11080  3648  ??  Ss    3:59PM   0:00.00 /usr/sbin/sendmail -L sm-msp-queue -Ac -q30m
With this in /var/spool/clientmqueue no PID file of sendmail-clientmqueue and mail in this directory does not go away. Directory permissions smmsp: smmsp 770.
Sendmail config:
Code:

[cmd=]service sendmail status[/cmd]

This should give you something like:

Code:
sendmail is running as pid 1190.
sendmail_submit is running as pid 1190.
sendmail_clientmqueue is running as pid 1198.
[cmd=]service sendmail rcvar[/cmd]

Code:
# sendmail
#
sendmail_enable="NO"
#   (default: "")

# sendmail_submit
#
sendmail_enable="NO"
#   (default: "")
sendmail_submit_enable="YES"
#   (default: "")

# sendmail_clientmqueue
#
sendmail_enable="NO"
#   (default: "")
sendmail_submit_enable="YES"
#   (default: "")
sendmail_msp_queue_enable="YES"
#   (default: "")
[cmd=]ps ax | grep sendmail[/cmd]

Code:
 1190  ??  Ss     0:00.36 sendmail: accepting connections (sendmail)
 1198  ??  Is     0:00.01 sendmail: Queue runner@00:30:00 for /var/spool/clientmqueue (sendmail)

I'm not sure but think that FreeBSD haven't 'service' utility, however:
Code:
> service
service: Command not found.
> /bin/service
/bin/service: Command not found.
> /sbin/service
/sbin/service: Command not found.
> /usr/local/bin/service
/usr/local/bin/service: Command not found.
> /usr/local/sbin/service
/usr/local/sbin/service: Command not found.

You mean: your version of FreeBSD does not have it:

Code:
$ which service
/usr/sbin/service
Code:
HISTORY
     The service manual page service first appeared in FreeBSD 7.3.
If you're on 8.x, you should have service(8).

Substitute 'service' with '/etc/rc.d/' then.

/etc/rc.d/sendmail status
/etc/rc.d/sendmail rcvar

[CMD=""]/etc/rc.d/sendmail status[/CMD]

I think
Code:
96975  ??  Ss     0:24.49 /usr/sbin/sendmail -L sm-msp-queue -Ac -q30m
is a sendmail_clientmqueue, but when it started pid file wasn't create.

Code:
Queue runner@00:30:00 for /var/spool/clientmqueue (sendmail)
should be running.

If you have no entries for Sendmail in /etc/rc.conf (and you shouldn't, unless you're running an SMTP server for inbound email), the entries in /etc/defaults/rc.conf will make sure that all necessary Sendmail processes are started (unless you altered /etc/defaults/rc.conf, which you should never do)

[cmd=]/etc/rc.d/sendmail rcvar | grep ^sendmail[/cmd] should give you:

Code:
sendmail_enable="NO"
sendmail_enable="NO"
sendmail_submit_enable="[B]YES[/B]"
sendmail_enable="NO"
sendmail_submit_enable="[B]YES[/B]"
sendmail_msp_queue_enable="[B]YES[/B]"
The last one empties the local queue (clientmqueue).

The relevant block in /etc/defaults/rc.conf (the one you should never edit) should look like this:

Code:
##############################################################
###  Mail Transfer Agent (MTA) options  ######################
##############################################################

mta_start_script="/etc/rc.sendmail"
                        # Script to start your chosen MTA, called by /etc/rc.
# Settings for /etc/rc.sendmail and /etc/rc.d/sendmail:
sendmail_enable="NO"    # Run the sendmail inbound daemon (YES/NO).
sendmail_pidfile="/var/run/sendmail.pid"        # sendmail pid file
sendmail_procname="/usr/sbin/sendmail"          # sendmail process name
sendmail_flags="-L sm-mta -bd -q30m" # Flags to sendmail (as a server)
sendmail_submit_enable="YES"    # Start a localhost-only MTA for mail submission
sendmail_submit_flags="-L sm-mta -bd -q30m -ODaemonPortOptions=Addr=localhost"
                                # Flags for localhost-only MTA
sendmail_outbound_enable="YES"  # Dequeue stuck mail (YES/NO).
sendmail_outbound_flags="-L sm-queue -q30m" # Flags to sendmail (outbound only)
sendmail_msp_queue_enable="YES" # Dequeue stuck clientmqueue mail (YES/NO).
sendmail_msp_queue_flags="-L sm-msp-queue -Ac -q30m"
                                # Flags for sendmail_msp_queue daemon.
sendmail_rebuild_aliases="NO"   # Run newaliases if necessary (YES/NO).

If /var/log/messages and/or /var/log/maillog do not cry 'foul' about something, I have no idea what might be wrong.
