AIX Sendmail/Exchange 2003 Copy of Email and errors mailed to users

I do not know if this is Exchange or Sendmail.  When I send an email from Outlook through Exchange, if the email does not go through, I receive an error message.  All sent mail is also saved in a folder named Sent.  If I send an email through sendmail, this does not happen.  I want all emails that are sent from either Exchange or sendmail to send an email to the user if there is an error.  I also want all emails saved to a folder.  How is this possible?  I believe (because I know very little about sendmail) that I am relaying to Exchange.  I do not know what information you need from Exchange or where to find it.  I know very little about either Exchange or sendmail.  Here is what I belive to be the relevant information in sendmail:

##################
#   local info   #
##################

Cwlocalhost
# file containing names of hosts for which we receive email
###Fw/etc/sendmail.cw

# my official domain name
# ... define this only if sendmail cannot automatically determine your domain
#Dj

CP.

# UUCP relay host
DYrelayhostname
CPUUCP

# "Smart" relay host (may be null)
DSmail.mydomain.com
# operators that cannot be in local usernames (i.e., network indicators)
CO @ % !

# a class with just dot (for identifying canonical names)
C..

# a class with just a left bracket (for identifying domain literals)
C[[

# Generics table (mapping outgoing addresses)
Kgenerics dbm -o /etc/mail/genericstable

both systems should by default notify the user of any errors...if the message is delayed or rejected.  as for saving mail in a folder when sent, this is the job of the mail user agent (outlook, eudora, OE) not the server software. You mentioned outlook being used in conjunction with exchange, are you also using outlook with sendmail? If so, then it's probably a problem with outlook's config.

I am not using outlook with sendmail.  The operating system sendmail is on is AIX 4.3.3 and I do not know how to configure outlook with it.

You'll just need to configure the smtp server settings in outlook to use the ip of the aix server.

I am using Outlook 2003.  I can get the smtp server settings to work for outgoing mail, but there are no smtp settings for incoming.

incoming wont use smtp, it'll be either POP3 (downloads mail from the server to the client) or IMAP (mail stays on the server but syncd with client). Both pop3 and imap are different software packages (separate from sendmail) and you'll probably have to install it.
