sudo apt-get install sendmail

and it created a folder called /etc/mail

due various configuration problems, I have uninstalled it

sudo apt-get remove --purge sendmail

when I now reinstall it, the folder is not there anymore and neitehr can I run the

sudo sendmailconfig

because of the missing folder.

Any suggestions?
