setting up sendmail


I am trying to use sendmail on my webserver, running FC4. I have installed the email server package. If i use the sendmail command
> sendmail email@address.com
> Subject: test
>
> Test
Crtl-D
>
It does nothing. I never recieve the mail. I am on Bellsouth DSL and i have read that you must use their mail server (mail.bellsouth.net). How do I setup up sendmail to use their server, and for that matter, do i need any more steps to get sendmail to work.

All i am trying to do is send mail from the server, at this point i don't care to recieve or run an email server. Just want to be able to command line send emails.
