Sendmail has what they call the "nullclient" configuration. You tell it
where a real mail server is and it merely sends outgoing mail, such as
might be generated by cron jobs, applications, web pages, or even users.
Check out the documents (especially README.cf) in /usr/share/doc/sendmail.
There is a prototype, /usr/share/sendmail-cf/cf/clientproto.mc
You will have to have to change the OSTYPE argument to linux and replace
the "mailhost.$m" with the name of your smart mailhost.
Note: I am running CentOS 4.1, which the the unbranded version of Red
Hat 4.1, er, em, I mean RHEL AS 4u1, so these instructions should apply
to your situation.
