Need a few clarifications regarding sending mail using sendmail.

I actually configured Bugzilla on a test server. The configuration was successful and I am now able to use it.

I also want that, whenever a new bug is created or any bug is updated, a mail to be sent. For that, I already installed sendmail on my system and started the service, but mails are not being sent.

Following can be seen in my maillog file:

Apr 18 21:56:50 serverlinux sendmail[3827]: r3IGQhF1003825: 
    ctladdr=<zaman@serverlinux.example.com> (500/500),
    relay=mta6.am0.yahoodns.net. [],
    stat=Service unavailable

I am not sure whether just starting the sendmail service will help me to send mails or if I need to configure some parameter in sendmail.

How can I send mails using sendmail to any valid email-ids in the Internet domain?
