Well, it was not just one thing, but of all the tweaks I had to do,
only one turned out to be cruicial:
I had to comment out one line in sendmail.mc:

cd /etc/mail

edit sendmail.mc

DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp,Addr=, Name=MTA')dnl

i.e. add dnl to the start of the line, and that comments it out:

dnl DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp,Addr=, Name=MTA')dnl

The minor changes are the common sense things that most mail admins know:

In sendmail.mc:

MASQUERADE_AS(`the.domain.name.that.resolves.to.yo ur.router's.public.ip.address')dnl

You obtain one of these for free from dyndns.com

Uncomment the line

FEATURE(masquerade_envelope)dnl (i.e. remove the leading # sign and
leading dnl)

Uncomment the line




service sendmail restart

There are other files that need administration, but that is out of the
scope of this.
