[Mailman-Developers] Clueless when it comes to Sendmail

I need a dummies guide to Sendmail.

I have set up Mailman on my Linux box (v7.1 ) and installed Sendmail but I 
guess I haven't configured Sendmail properly because tried to set up a test 
list and send a message to my email account and did not receive an email.

I see the following in the mail logs:

Oct 29 14:46:07 www sendmail[754]: alias database /etc/aliases rebuilt by 
Oct 29 14:46:07 www sendmail[754]: /etc/aliases: 40 aliases, longest 10 
bytes, 395 bytes total
Oct 29 14:46:08 www sendmail[764]: starting daemon (8.11.2): 
Oct 29 15:48:23 www sendmail[8265]: f9TFl3n08265: from=<test-admin@EuroVMS>, 
size=1935, class=-60, nrcpts=0, 
msgid=<200110291548.f9TFl3n08265@www.eurovms.org.uk>, proto=ESMTP, 
daemon=MTA, relay=www.eurovms.org.uk []
Oct 29 15:48:23 www sendmail[8265]: f9TFl3n08265: 
to=<cra@sas-glas.mottmac.com>, delay=00:00:00, mailer=esmtp, pri=109935, 
dsn=4.4.3, stat=queued

I haven't been working with Linux that long so I guess I need a step by step 
guide to configuring Sendmail.

If anyone could take the time out I would be very grateful.

Thanks in advance,
