using sendmail to forward to a remote smtp server

Is it possible to configure sendmail to forward everything to a remote sendmail server? If so, is it possible to specify a username and password and ssl for the connection?

If not, does anybody have any other ideas how I might use a remote smtp server with Mutt? Installing a lightweight MTA isn't a problem, but I couldn't find any that have this functionality.

Many thanks.
