Install the package.

Then edit /etc/mail/ to comment out the line that allows only 
localhost connections.

Then issue 'make -C /etc/mail'

Check that file was recently updated (e.g. the 
date/timestamp is a few seconds ago.)

Issue 'service sendmail restart'.

If all goes well you should be able to send and recieve.
