Package: sendmail-8.12.7

In the sendmail preparation , the commands :

groupadd smmsp &&
groupadd mail &&
useradd -g smmsp -G mail -u smmsp &&
chmod 1777 /tmp &&
chmod 1777 /var/mail &&
mkdir /var/spool/mqueue

produce the error:
useradd: invalid numeric argument `smmsp'

man useradd says that the -u option to useradd requires a numeric UID....
