You may want to look at the /etc/rc.d/init.d/mimedefang start up script
(if you are using it start up mimedefang).  I received a few errors
similar to yours, I then uncommented the lines dealing with the sock
files.  It seemed to do the trick.

I got these if I restarted sendmail without restarting mimedefang after
fully shutting sendmail down.  In some cases, I've had to wait 15
seconds before MD was *safe* for sendmail to open those .sock's.
Perhaps this may help.
