Hi How urgent it is?
Who told you,you will get urgent reply here?
Why did you post ifconfig and /etc/mail output here?
Do you know what's mail server?
Do you know what's MTA,MDA,POP,IMAP?

Follow this before asking questions:

Dear Valla,

Welcome to LQ !!

Understand the protocols and terms Prayag has mentioned in post 1.

You man have a look here Sendmail Howto On RHEL

Do not try to configure something in urgent, chances are more that you may compromise your system for attacks.

Very Basic Sendmail setup is explained.

Warm Regards,
