Sendmail issue in Solaris 8

I am getting this error in my sun solaris 8 servers, I am not understanding why this error is coming. please help. 
sendmail[1054]: [ID 801593 mail.crit] NOQUEUE: SYSERR(root): getrequests: accept: Software caused connection abort

Check if /var/spool/mqeueu and /var/spool/mail directories exist

I checked both directories but only mqeueu existing, I have total five 
solaris server but no one have mail dir in /var/spool/. I am getting this 
message in "dmesg" command.
I find an arcticle likly your. But please also concern about the existing of folder as one previous  
That is the point (Where do you get the error message from?). DMESG report the system diagnostic. Ther are varieties of error that the system detected. So someday you may find the error for inet , ftp,telnet ..etc 
So it does not an error from SENDMAIL daemon. Please don't be worrry not sign seem to harm your send mail daemon. You are a good monitoring admin. Good luck. 

I think the mail directory is not on /var/spool but on /var. The user's mail file are in /var/mail directory. 
About you problem, this kind of message comes when the /var/mail/root file ends with a partial line (having no terminating newline character). 
So check the end of the /var/mail/root file and check if new empty line exists at his end.
