John. I'm not sure on sendmail but I have a jnos box on my Linux system and
I use the ampernet mail box as by linux mailbox also. I am using the pine
mailer under linux but sendmail config should be about the same as
".pinerc" for pine. Here's what I did:

#1- Linux system
        my user name and host address is glennsil@oajnet.org

#2- Jnos system
        my user name/host is wa1oaj@wa1oaj-1.ampr.org

In my personal home directory (not my root directory) ie; /home/glennsil
I removed the ~/mail subdirectory and replaced it with a pointer that
points to the jnos mail directory ie; ln -s /oajnet/spool/mail mail

This makes the "default" mail stuff that wants to use /home/glennsil/mail

Next I changed the mail rc file (.pinerc) to overide my own domain name
ie; oajnet.org... and replace it with wa1oaj-1.ampr.org

I also set up in .pinerc that my "smartmail host" was wa1oaj-1.ampr.org

This way instead of using "bm.exe" or whatever with jnos I can if I want
to but I can send/recv mail from linux/jnos with pine.

I would think that the above should work with sendmail too. I got tierd
of fighting with sendmail myself... <grin>
