    Do you know what this involves? It's not as simple as installing an app and off you go.

    Sendmail is supported on OS X. I just compiled it.

    EDIT: Sendmail is also included in OS X anyway, you don't need to download it, I believe

    Actually, I think sendmail comes with OS X. Whoops.

    edit: or Postfix, not sure...either way, both work.

    Either way, there is a version already included. I don't think that the OP has any idea what he's doing.
