Can't exec /usr/sbin/sendmail (After Kernel Install) ??

I have just recently compiled my first kernel (2.4.10)
onto my Mandrake 8.0 system.

All seems to be working fine, so I had a look at the
'dmesg' file in /var/log just to see it any errors
were appearing.

I have noticed that the following is occuring:

Oct 8 19:46:53 qld anacron[818]: Job 'cron.daily'
terminate (mailing output)
Oct 8 19:46:53 qld anacron[1302]: Can't exec
/usr/sbin/sendmail: No such file or directory
Oct 8 19:46:53 qld anacron[818]: Tried to mail output
to job 'cron.daily', but mailer process
(/usr/sbin/sendmail) exited with status 1
Oct 8 19:46:53 qld anacron[818]: Normal exit (1 jobs

Is it just a matter or installing sendmail and all
will be sweet again ?
