Sendmail compiling for the no-server crowd

For anyone who only wants a box to e-mail it's own logs (and not run a server) and that's still trying to figure out how to get the newest version of Sendmail to run without the "Connection refused by" error:

   Edit /etc/mail/submit.cf so that the DS line contains the FQDN to your upstream mail server.

   Example: DSmail.myisp.com

You'll also need to set root:smmsp permissions on /var/spool/mqueue.

Hope this saves someone else some time (it took a bit of reading on my part).
