Sorry, can't help you with a sendmail based logfile parser. But if your
willing to switch to using postfix as your MTA, then checkout pflogsumm.pl.
It will generate a nightly report that gives you all the data your mentioned
above - and then some! 

Pflogsumm can be found at: http://jimsun.linxnet.com/postfix_contrib.html
