    how do I configure sendmail so that I can use sendmail to actually send mail.
my ubuntu 10.10 host's static IP is, and it's on a router connected to a cable modem. I think my cable company will only allow smtp mail to go through one of there servers How do I configure my machine to allow programs to send mail via the sendmail deamon to the outside internet world?I know I'm supposed to modify items in and than do a make in /etc/mail , and restart sendmail via init.d, but I'm not sure what I should be modifying
