Define the Smart Host in /etc/mail/sendmail.mc You should add these lines just after the commented "#dnl define('SMART_HOST', 'smtp.your.provider')dnl" line in the file

define(`SMART_HOST', `smtp.mailazy.com')dnl
FEATURE(`access_db')dnl
define(`RELAY_MAILER_ARGS', `TCP $h 587')dnl

$ cd /etc/mail
$ m4 sendmail.mc >sendmail.cf
$ makemap hash access.db < access

On older distros, you can run restart sendmail like so:

$ /etc/init.d/sendmail restart
