What are you wanting to do?

The easiest way to config sendmail is to edit /etc/mail/ then run make -C /etc/mail to create your file and the hashes for access etc...

HINT: there is a really good guide on

If you really want to get a headache and appear to be a uber-geekk, buy the O'Reilly "bat" book and learn it off by heart.....

If you just need to get sendmail working, learn and use the file

Email if you get stuck
