I've got the same problem (university forces me to use their broken
SMTP server), but I get around it by having using the following as my
local sendmail:

      ssh -qT $SERVER /usr/bin/sendmail $@

Of course it requires having ssh privs on a box with a properly
configured sendmail, so maybe it's not generally applicable.
