You want to read your mail with exchange client?
Ok, then you need a pop server. This has nothing to do with sendmail (yes, sendmail can handle pop too, but there are better standalone popservers).

Get qpop2.2 from ftp://ftp.darkface.pp.se/pub/unix/mail/
Unpack, compile and install it.
Add pop3         110/tcp to the /etc/services file (if it doesnt already exist).
Add pop3 stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/sbin/popper popper -s to the inetd.conf file
kill -HUP the inetd

Enter the popaccnt name and server IP in your exchnage client and you can feth your mail with pop.

I dont know if exchange servers can move mail to its clients in some other way than pop or imap. anysways, doesnt  sendmail in itself support this, so pop is best choice.
