Do you have a /usr/lib/sendmail, not just /usr/sbin/sendmail?  If not,
have you used the "sendmail:" configuration directive to change sieve's
idea of which program to use to send new messages, such as with redirect
or vacation?

If the OS packaging included documentation, then you should have an
"install-sieve.html" document, which covers this and walks you through
"Everything has three factors: politics, money, and the right way to do it.
 In that order."  -- Gary Donahue
