Check what was installed with dpkg --listfiles sendmail.  Also look
for a sendmail-smrsh package (or some such name) in aptitude (or
whatever frontend to dpkg you prefer), and install if appropriate.

Sounds like Sendmail has not been configured to handle (remote) mail
on your system yet.  Have you tried "dpkg-reconfigure sendmail"?
(Once again, adjust package naming as appropriate.)

As you suspect, at this point what you have are Sendmail issues and
there surely is an active mailing list or newsgroup for Sendmail.  Ask
there.  Also check the Debian manuals; there's probably something
about configuring MTAs.
