Have a look, too, at the sendmail config info at
which is very straightforward and makes setting up sendmail v easy (I
suppose you might want to use local sendmail if you have a permanently
connected setup). The scripts only work with Solaris 8 up to about the
07/01 version - the supplied scripts change some time after that, and
Solaris 9 reverts to BSD sendmail (I think!), though not currently an
issue on x86 platform. If you get this working, backup your sendmail
config scripts - applying the latest patch cluster installs the newer
version of sendmail.cf
Hope this is useful - I am by no means an expert but do have a Solaris
setup (sparc) working fine with cable modem, and it receives and sends
mail no problem.
