Unhappy Backuppc Error on Install...


I'm trying to follow along with: http://www.howtoforge.com/linux_backuppc

And after I try to run (as root): apt-get install backuppc rsync libfile-rsyncp-perl smbfs

I get....

Setting up backuppc (2.1.2-2ubuntu5) ...
* Starting backuppc... 2007-10-29 09:29:35 $Conf{SendmailPath} = '/usr/sbin/sendmail' is not a valid executable program
invoke-rc.d: initscript backuppc, action "start" failed.
dpkg: error processing backuppc (--configure):
subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Setting up smbfs (3.0.22-1ubuntu3.3) ...
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

It looks like its some what working because I'm able to login but once In I see the menu options but at the top of the page it says...

"Unable to connect to server."
Any ideas?
