My question are
1. Is it possible for sending emails from the host that hasn't run "sendmail"
on it.

Sure, but you will have to use a program like pine or Mozilla, which lets you configure it to use a remote SMTP host.

2. It seem "mail" try to connect SMTP on  If I want
"mail" connect to SMTP on the remote host ('s mail server),  or
say I want to change my "outgoing mail host". How can I do this ?

The command-line mail program expects sendmail to be working locally; I don't believe you can tell it not to connect to localhost.

To change your default mail host, look for the SMART_HOST directive in /etc/mail/
