Last year I did quite a bit of thinking and exploration to get sendmail up and running under Jaguar, and found a somewhat simpler way of getting things working. I've summarised the results at <http://homepage.mac.com/rhook/arc03.html#tag11>. The only other tricky thing not mentioned in that mumbling monologue is that, while on-line with my cable service, I needed to tinker with the contents of /etc/mail/local-host-names, as described in the main part of <http://homepage.mac.com/rhook/>.


Unfortunately too, for those who wonder, the current version of Mail.app won't directly read Unix mail, it needs to talk to some local server such as a POP server to get its mail.
