Although the "Sendmail" book of O'Reilly is considered the "bible" of
Sendmail, all it does it go through the different parts of the
sendmail.cf file (at least the 2nd ed does).  I find the following books
MUCH easier on the newbie that has been cursed to admin/learn sendmail:

"Sendmail Cookbook" (O'Reilly ISBN 059600471-0
"Linux Sendmail Administration" (Sybex ISBN 0782127371)

When you get to trying to make sendmail perform, then go for "sendmail
Performance Tuning" (Addison-Wesley ISBN 0321115708).

Good luck in your efforts.
