    Below are two sites which may help (found them by using a simple google search). Also, the man pages should have more than enough information on how to configure sendmail. Good luck.

    Have a look at other MTA's (mail transport agents), Sendmail is powerful but a bastard to configure correctly, Postfix seems fairly popular these days and is a lot easier to configure, have a look around and I'm sure you'll find a better solution than Sendmail.

    [glowpurple]manually editing your config files can break them. If this happens, you get to keep both pieces. [/glowpurple]
