Oops. I was hoping that would help, but it was only a wild guess by
looking at the error message and the Google hits I could find for
related threads.

As Chuck wrote, the error is coming from the TLS support code.  Can you
try the openssl commands he mentioned?

    Well, the error is coming from /usr/src/contrib/sendmail/src/tls.c, and
    depends on openssl to deal with your cert.  Does:

      openssl verify -verbose /etc/mail/CA/private/cakey.pem

    ...say anything interesting?  What about:

      openssl x509 -in /etc/mail/CA/private/cakey.pem -text
