It might be helpful if you indicated *what* the problem was/is you are
seeing, what platform you are using, etc.  Also, does sendmail actually
work when you email the user from the same machine?  If not, chances
are it's an issue with sendmail and not sudo.

To test, you can invoke "/usr/sbin/sendmail -t" (from what you listed,
above) and feed it a "test" email on standard input, such as one like
this one, below.

-- begin
To: usertoto at cgi.com
Subject: Test of Sendmail

This is a test of sendmail (with headers) from the command line.

-- end

...until that works (or something similar with other mailerflags maybe),
sudo doesn't have any hope, either.

Hope that helps...
