Sendmail implements a general purpose internetwork mail routing facility under the UNIX(R) operating system. It is not tied to any one transport protocol its function may be likened to a crossbar switch, relaying messages from one domain into another. In the process, it can do a limited amount of message header editing to put the message into a format that is appropriate for the receiving domain. All of this is done under the control of a configuration file. ...Due to the requirements of flexibility for the configuration file can seem somewhat unapproachable. However, there are only a few basic configurations for most sites, for which standard configuration files have been supplied. Most other configurations can be built by adjusting an existing configuration file incrementally.
Read /etc/mail/README or the O'Reilly book for details on configuring sendmail.
