No need to uninstall something as its a runtime error and not a installation problem. The error just means that a script executed the sendmail wrapper program with wrong parameters.

No, I dont think so. You can not even see this with snort as sendmail is a binary on your server which is invoked by shell scripts and also by php to send emails, so there are no network connections to this program, its just a normal commandline call.

If you see this error regularily at a specific time, then check which cronjobs are running at this timepoint.

If the probelm started just recently, you might be able to find out which new script has been installed that causes this error.

In general, the error is not critical, it affects only the script that uses the command wrong in that way that the email that the scripts tries to send will not arrive. So sooner or later you should be abke to find the script as its email sending functions just did not work at the moment.

Question when this is spam?

Till I agree with this principle, but when it is spam that generates this error, how to do it to know the source of the problem?

Exist there a script that works with ispconfig 3 with a configuration in debian squeeze ...

thank you

The above error message could not hae sent any spam as it indicates that no email was sent.

If you have a problem with spam emails sent by scripts, you can find them most likely in the postfix deferred queue (command: postqueue -p), then you can viw the content of the email with the postcat command. Then check the email details of this spam email if it contains data in the header that shows you which website has sent it.
