trying to answer q2 because q1 was too complicated :-)

edit /etc/mail/submit.cf and change

D{MTAHost}[localhost] 

to

D{MTAHost}[<global mail server>]

restart sendmail. this is untested, so let me know if it works
for you.

because relaying over <global mail server> is only permitted
after a successfull pop login, use fetchmail just before sending
the mail:

fetchmail -c -p pop3 -u <your username> <global mail server>
