You'll definitely have trouble coz the default Red Hat configuration does not allow sendmail to bind on your network ip address.
make sure you have sendmail-cf rpm package installed and do the following

open the /etc/mail/sendmail.mc file and change the following line

DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp,Addr=127.0.0.1, Name=MTA')dnl

to

dnl # DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp,Addr=127.0.0.1, Name=MTA')dnl

restart sendmail

uncomment and modify the following lines

MASQUERADE_AS(`example.com')
FEATURE(masquerade_envelope)
FEATURE(masquerade_entire_domain)

edit /etc/mail/access file to include your network some thing like below

192.168.1                               RELAY

finally add your domain name to /etc/mail/local-host-names file refer below

example.com

Note: replace example.com with your real domain name and 192.168.1 with your real network id

then run the following command as root

# make -C /etc/mail
# service sendmail restart

thats it now you can send mail to any one in the internet if your mail server have access to internet.

Oops I almost forgot about POP3 or IMAP for mail retrival within your network

I personally suugest you to go for UW IMAP server which provides POP3 support too. Its very easy requires almost NIL configuration. Unfortunately Fedora Core 3 replaced it with dovecot. You can still grab the FC3 rpm from the following like
http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat/4/idpl/1655208/com/imap-2004-0.fdr.9.c.3.i386.rpm.html

Install it enable it using the following command

# chkconfig ipop3 on
# service xinetd reload

thats it now you can download mail from any mail clients like Thunderbird, Outlook etc.
