sorry for this one, but... I need directions so that I can email the world from Linux


I've downloaded and installed RHat Linux V4 (update 4). By default I have sendmail installed and running.

I now want to be able to send email from Linux server. I probably need to pay a huge company large sums of money to do it for me, but I'm keen to learn it for myself. Can someone give me a few pointers or refer me to some good resources/guides.

I've plugged my Linux box into my router and I can see the world (e.g. browse, etc), just can't email it.

I'm thinking it goes something like this:

1) Register my domain (
2) Modify sendmail (how? what?)
3) hope!

I'd really appreciate some help - even though I'm probably sounding far too green!
