 Get the latest version of sendmail from http://www.sendmail.org -- if you go into the cf directory (to make the sendmail.cf configuration file) you will see you can set the option 'no promiscuous mode' ... this prevents your system being used by spammers to relay mail.  However, you can still receive mail fine.
  Hence, this is the answer to your question ... configure sendmail to have this option set, but you may need to download and compile the latest sendmail, depending on what version you have.
