I got a variiety of replies, includign a few that said it could not be done
But the trick is to
A) set the smart relay mailer
(in /etc/mail/sendmail.cf as )
# "Smart" relay host (may be null)
B) make sure that mailhost is in your /etc/hosts
Other people suggested adding
to the m4 configuration files, but we have an older version of sendmail.
Many thanks to all who replied (too many to list here).
