I can sort of perhaps see why you would choose "mail client" wanting to
get such a result, but you want "sendmail" instead.

The only way I can see that this can happen is if you have customized
browse-url-browser-function to browse-url-w3, and don't have the w3
library installed. So please tell us what 

C-h v browse-url-browser-function RET

says for you. If it does say browse-url-w3, then that's a bug in your
configuration.
