Sendmail is a big, complex program ... I'm sure if you had the time, you could make it wash dishes for you. There are a gazillion howtos and explanations for configuring sendmail all across the internet. Considering the fact that you're using FreeBSD, I recommend the one specifically written for FreeBSD in the Handbook. I found this page particularly useful: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/smtp-dialup.html

Third task was to get my email work... and now the problems begins.
I own the domain beutler.se, and my computers name is visthusboden. The server accepts incoming mail all right - no problems there... BUT... ...whatever I do, all outgoing mail get the address [EMAIL PROTECTED] instead of [EMAIL PROTECTED]
What am I doing wrong?
I've checked and tripple-checked every file in /etc/namedb/ and everything looks fine (no missing dots or some simple problem like that) and I've really read this through in the FreeBSD manual... and still... ???
It's not a DNS issue, it's "sendmail".
What it's currently doing is correct - by default, it uses your fully qualified hostname for the Sender address -- it doesn't know that "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" will work also - so, you need to tell sendmail of this fact:
You can do this with the "massquerading" feature of sendmail.
