Under Debian you setup sendmail with sendmailconfig. Then edit the custom
section of /etc/mail/ Below is what I added to my

## Custom configurations below (will be preserved)

I assume you have installed fnet.m4 into /usr/lib/

Then you need to setup the mailertable. Below is my mailertable:
.katnet.ftn fido:f319.n100.z16.katnet.ftn
. uucp-dom:troll

Once you have setup your table in /etc. Execute this command:

makemap hash mailertable < mailertable

After this you just run sendmailconfig again and answer yes to the
following question:

Configure sendmail with the existing /etc/mail/ [Y]

This will compile a suitable for sendmail.

Hope you fine this helpful enough.
