hi guys , 
i have spended some time to resolve a problem with IC sending email to
admin and customer. i am no profesional, so please i hope i did
explained the steps as clearly as possible 
here it goes:

i am using IC 5.3, with red hat linux 3 enterprise

Sendmail with IC fixed.

Configuring sendmail, so it will send emails to admin and customers.

1. Download and install m4-1.4.2.tar.gz
	# tar xzf m4-1.4.2.tar.gz
	# make
	# make check
	# make install
	to remove the program binaries and object files from the
           source directory by typing `# make clean'

	ps. you can view INSTALL file within directory.
2. Download sendmail-cf-8.11.6-3-i386.rpm and install.

(note: these two files are used to rebuild sendmail configuration file,
that you will modify.

3.Open /etc/mail/sendmail.mc config file and find a line: 
	dnl define(`SMART_HOST',`smtp.your.provider')
	a) erase dnl
	b) substitute `smtp' with a domain where the mail will go to
	example: define(`SMART_HOST',`smtp.comcast.net')
4.In a command type # m4 /etc/mail/sendmail.mc>/etc/mail/sendmail.cf  
  This will rebuild your sendmail.cf file.

5.Open /etc/hosts file and add mail server name. Example, when you open
host file you will see someting like this:
nasaut.laptop	localhost.
You have to add mail server name after the example:
smtp.comcast.net nasaut.laptop	localhost

6.After that restart senmail:# /etc/rc.d/init.d/sendmail restart 
7.Test your senmail with: # sendmail -vt [press enter]
	To: sent at email.to [press enter]
	. [press enter]

NOTE:For some reason on my other machine i had to reboot the system ,
after that it worked.

good luck
