Evolution and sendmail


I am running red-hat 8 and I am using the latest version of evolution. The problem I am having, is that when I send mail people don't receive it. I have evolution configured to use sendmail for sending mail. I can't use SMTP because my network admin doesn't want us using that (we got hacked a while back and he is still paranoid). I don't think that this is a problem with Evolution exactly, because I used Kmail and I had the same problem. Is there something I have to configure? Is there somewhere I can look for error messages?
