Not wanting to sound patronising, but doc/install-configure.html already 
says this:

  * Edit /etc/group and add user "daemon" to the "mail" group. This 
    will permit sendmail to run the "deliver" (LMTP client) program to
    deliver mail to the IMAP server.

Mind you, it's under Sendmail 8.9.x - perhaps it need to be moved to an
outer scope?
