Can you do M-x trace-function-background RET call-process-region RET,
then run the code, then look at the *trace-output* buffer to see what
call-process-region returns?

Hmm... which version of sendmail.el is that?  On the trunk and the
Emacs-22 branch, this code is the body of the `let' that runs
call-process-region, so it definitely should be run.
