My ISP is called eircom.net .
So I uncommented and edited the line
define(`SMART_HOST', `smtp.eircom.net')dnl
in /etc/mail/sendmail.mc ,
and followed the instructions at the head of this file
to give the command "make -C /etc/mail".

I think that is all one normally needs to do.
I certainly do not want to read a book about sendmail.

The file /var/log/maillog gives information (too much information)
about what happens to each mail message.
