I recently installed a new Ubuntu server on our network:
Linux d1421-0a1078b8 2.6.31-17-server #54-Ubuntu SMP Thu Dec 10 18:06:56 UTC 2009 x86_64
Now I want to set up sendmail/mailx to work like it does on another server in the network with SunOS 5.9.
Mail setup is something that seems very tedious and complicated.  Is it possible to simply copy some of the key files from the working server?

In order to set a mail server in Ubuntu, you should configure postfix like explained here:

I don't think you had postfix in SunOS, so no chance to copy configuration files.
