daemon could not open control socket /var/run/sendmail.control: Group writable directory

Hi all,
This line is in my /var/log/mail file.

daemon could not open control socket /var/run/sendmail.control: Group
writable directory

That is what i get.
It works, sendmail, but ...

I checked the dir, but no such file...
I am using suse 7 here
What am I missing ?
I don't use a internet connection (yet) so only lan connects here. We use
this with 7 pc's to email.
This works, so I don't understand this line about "open control socket"  ??

Thnx
