sendmail is a great module, but it takes more than forever to understand
all of it, and a long time to understand enough to make a simple set up
work.  I would strongly reccommned the 'bat' book by O'Rielly.  There is
also a 'sendmail cookbook' by O'Rielly that I have found very useful.  

Best advice I can give is "Don't Give up, and don't stop reading!"  If
you have specific questions I'd be happy to help with what I have
learned.   Contact me off list if you would like me to help.

Good Luck!!!!
