In /etc/mail/

Edit this line from

dnl define(`SMART_HOST',`smtp.your.provider')




Remove "dnl"

Add your isp, "smtp.local.isp" is only an example

Be careful not to remove the quotation marks from (`SMART_HOST',`smtp.local.isp') if you look closely they are not all the same

Remake, restart sendmail
