Alright then, the crystal ball says:

You have a sendmail installation where the sendmail executable (eg
/usr/sbin/sendmail) is not suid root. Either make it so (chmod u+s
/usr/sbin/sendmail), or if you can't/don't want to do that, try

(setq message-send-mail-function 'smtpmail-send-it  ; for Gnus
      send-mail-function 'smtpmail-send-it          ; for other things
      smtpmail-debug-info t    ; only while you sort out this issue
      smtpmail-smtp-server "your.mail.server")
