If you don't want your ~/.mailrc file to be read by Emacs, set
mail-aliases to nil in your ~/.emacs file.

But you should find out why gnus is invoking mh/post instead of
sendmail, and fix that.

And you might want to examine your ~/.mailrc file -- if mh/post is
choking on it, there might be actually be an error in it.
