1) You will need to set up sendmail as "submit-only" on your box. Look at
/etc/mail/freebsd.submit.mc and "man rc.sendmail"
2) You need to set up sendmail to use another mail server instead of
localhost. This is set using the "SMART_HOST" option in freebsd.submit.mc;
check http://www.sendmail.org for documentation on how to set this.
Take a look at "SMART_HOST" in /etc/mail/freebsd.mc
