Sendmail just to send through another mailserver

Basically I have setup a appserver to host a PHP web application which has email within. However the email wants to be sent from SENDMAIL sooo i need to configure my sendmail to just push all emails to my local SMTP server..

I have no idea with Sendmail and to be honest what ive read from my searches doesnt seem to cover what I want to do.. Im confused :S

If anyone could help that would be GREAT!!!

Experience with PHP mail() + sendmail:

what I had trouble with was that a SMTP server of my ISP was constantly rejecting my emails sent by my sendmail (linux.localhost does not exist). So i masqueraded it as my own domain (first had to setup DNS names). Then it got through.

If you already tried mail() on your server try looking in your /var/mail what went wrong. If your SMTP is rejecting mail addresses too.
