How do I setup sendmail to work between 3 network hosts

I'm new to linux/unix and currently taking an advanced systems administration class in college. One of the objectives in our lab is to setup Sendmail on Redhat Enterprise Linux 4, FreeBSD 6.1, Solaris 10 and then be able to send mail between the hosts locally and I'm not allowed to use relaying. I haven't found any releavant examples. can anyone help me?

I dont see a problem here. try putting in some effort on setting up sendmail on two servers, use the dns domains to send emails. shouldnt be a problem.
freebsd> mail -v -s "hello" root@rhel4
solaris> mail -v -s "hello2" root@freebsd
