You need to build yourself a customised sendmail configuration, which
you can do in the following way.

    % cd /etc/mail
    # make

(# here implies you'll need root privileges to do this command) This
will create a file named after your host (referred to as
`hostname`.mc) which can be processed through the macro processor
m4(1) in order to generate a sendmail configuration file.

Now, edit the `hostname`.mc file and add lines according to the
following patch:

Now, process the `hostname`.mc file into a sendmail configuration
file, install it as /etc/mail/sendmail.cf and restart sendmail so it
picks up the changes.

    # make all
    # make install
    # make restart_mta

Et voila.

Read the file /usr/share/sendmail/cf/README for details about how to
generate a sendmail configuration.
