    You're probably still in your home directory and NOT in the /etc/mail/ directory (where the sendmail.cf file lives).

    You have two options, either:

    1) Enter "cd /etc/mail" and then try again "sudo cp -p sendmail.cf sendmail.cf.bak".

    2) Use the full path name in your command: "sudo cp -p /etc/mail/sendmail.cf /etc/mail/sendmail.cf.bak"
