There are lots of tutorials on Google. You don't say whether you want sendmail or postfix.

Here's some regarding Sendmail, which is the more prevalent.

I would probably push you towards postfix since it's the other mail server that comes standard with RHEL5(if it's not on your system it should be on your install CDs/DVD). Also install the system-switch-mail utility to switch your MTA from sendmail to postfix. Then go into /etc/postfix/main.cf and configure away. The file is nicely commented and fairly intuitive. Two things that sendmail.cf is not so much
