Trying to set up my sendmail in Unix.. Pls help!

I'm trying to get sendmail to work so I can send out emails thru my website, but it's pretty confusing I think. I've located /etc/sendmail.cf but don't know where to make the changes. What do I need to get this to work? Probably:

my hostname
my IP address
ports opened on my cisco box

I'm not exactly sure what I need, but I can get any information I need. Please direct me on how to get this working. Thanks in advance for all the help.

What's your host OS?

If you're just trying to send mail you may well be set up already as 'send' often works without sendmail.

If you want to receive mail as well, then there may be some work yet to do.

I am using UNIX AIX 4.3.3. How can I test out if sendmail is already setup? Also what would I put in my webpage to access sendmail to send a form?
