I've never done any network configuration.
I've got this app. running on Linux, which accesses the internet, but

sendmail's man gives only options, for somebody who already knows how to start.

from the 'network USEnetGroup' how to configure it
if I fail after reading the man.
Well I didn't even know where to START after reading the man,
but I liked the /etc/mail/helpfile which explained the:
HELO EHLO AUTH. I read it with `less` and `sendmail help`
