I'm out...I abandoned sendmail for postfix years ago. A suggestion
though...set up a server on your lan to handle relaying all outbound
mail and use an smtp connection to that server instead of relying upon
the local /usr/bin/sendmail binary. That pretty much solves the issue of
configuring each workstation to handle mail deliveries.
