You could try Smail instead; the Debian package will take most of the
work out of configuring it for you.  AUIU, the Debian sendmail package
needs quite some work to configure.

BTW: you will get more helpful answers if you cc your responses to me
to debian-user@pixar.com.  For example, I am far more familiar with
Smail than sendmail, but there are others on the list who know more
about sendmail and will probably be able to be more helpful if you
decide to stick to sendmail.
