I know this is old, but: Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!

This totally fixed my issue. I was pulling my hair out knowing that sendmail was up and running, but just not configured correctly. I'm using an Amazon Web Serveces (EC2) off-the-shelf instance. Hope this helps someone else figure out sendmail on Amazon.

Also, two other settings of note:
  1. use an Elastic IP
  2. then, you need to set up a domain or subdomain for your instance
