This plagued me too. I found a very easy solution: esmtp in the ports.

A few catches:

1: You need an external SMTP server that will relay the mail for you. I was
unable to get it to talk to the main host's SMTP, probably a "feature" of
jailing... Luckily, I have another box on the LAN who's sole purpose is to
relay mail for machines on the LAN.

2: After you install esmtp, change your sendmail links (/usr/sbin/sendmail
at least I think) to point at it. 

3: If you compiled PHP w/ a non-existent sendmail, you have to recompile.
It's a little confusing, but if you dig far enough in the docs, mail() will
not compile if sendmail doesn't exist (it tests).
