Ubuntu - sendmail problem

I am new to Ubuntu, but I just installed a server with the latest
version and I am having a bit of trouble getting MailScanner to work
I followed this page for direction:
I set up a mqueue.in directory next to mqueue but I'm not sure if I need
to edit the init script for sendmail. I could not find this in my
sendmail init script:
I'm not sure how I should start things. In the past, I would just fire
up only MailScanner. MailScanner would then take care of starting
sendmail. But now, it seems that sendmail does not get started.
I tried killing sendmail with /etc/init.d/sendmail stop, then firing up
MailScanner with /etc/init.d/mailscanner start. and it seems fine. My
MailScanner E-Mail Virus Scanner version 4.58.9 starting...
MailScanner: Read 764 hostnames from the phishing whitelist
MailScanner: Using SpamAssassin results cache
MailScanner: Connected to SpamAssassin cache database
MailScanner: Enabling SpamAssassin auto-whitelist functionality...
MailScanner: I have found clamav scanners installed, and will use them all by default.
MailScanner: ClamAV scanner using unrar command /usr/bin/unrar
MailScanner: Using locktype = posix
MailScanner: Creating hardcoded struct_flock subroutine for linux (Linux-type)
However, sendmail is not fired up at all.
When I send an email through the system, I get this in my mail.log
sm-msp-queue: m3SF8nol017674: to=info at gmnet.net, ctladdr=rbragg (1000/1000), delay=00:51:12, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay, pri=300058, relay=[127.0.0.1] [127.0.0.1], dsn=4.0.0, stat=Deferred: Connection refused by [127.0.0.1]
Obviously, because sendmail is not running!
My question is: How should I set up my startup scripts to start
MailScanner? and should I be starting up sendmail separately? or should
I only start MailScanner?
