To create users  you just have to add a unix account, so if you wanted joe@yourdomain just "useradd <optional options> joe".

If you just want to send mail you don't need accounts set up.  Your problem doesn't look like an account problem, something is wrong with the mail sending - "did not issue MAIL/EXPN/VRFY/ETRN during connection to MTA".  If that was a user-does-not-exist error it would say so.  What is that mail message...  are you sending that from a web form or something?

Also make sure your hostname is set (isn't localhost.localdomain any more) and edit  /etc/mail/ and change the Cw line from localhost to your servers actual DNS name.
I should also clarify - that error means you didn't get any valid SMTP commands.  This can happen if you just "telent localhost smtp"  and leave it, the connection times out, or you send garbage.  Whatever is sending that message is not doing it correctly - it is NOT sendmail's fault.
