Original README for mini_sendmail
mini_sendmail - accept email on behalf of real sendmail version 1.3.7 of 03jul2014
mini_sendmail reads its standard input up to an end-of-file and sends a copy of the message found there to all of the addresses listed. The message is sent by connecting to a local SMTP server. This means mini_sendmail can be used to send email from inside a chroot(2) area.
See the manual entry for more details.

To build: If you're on a SysV-like machine (which includes old Linux systems but not new Linux systems), edit the Makefile and uncomment the SYSV_LIBS line. Otherwise, just do a make.
After it's built, you must test it to make sure your local sendmail daemon is (a) running and (b) accepting local mail for delivery elsewhere. Here's what a successful test run might look like:
% echo 'Subject: test' | ./mini_sendmail -v email@example.com <<<< 220 gate.acme.com ESMTP Sendmail; Thu, 16 Dec 1999 17:17:37 -0800 (PST) >>>> HELO localhost <<<< 250 gate.acme.com Hello localhost [127.0.0.1], pleased to meet you >>>> MAIL FROM:<firstname.lastname@example.org> <<<< 250 <email@example.com>... Sender ok >>>> RCPT TO:<firstname.lastname@example.org> <<<< 250 <email@example.com>... Recipient ok >>>> DATA <<<< 354 Enter mail, end with "." on a line by itself <<<< 250 RAA58877 Message accepted for delivery >>>> QUIT <<<< 221 gate.acme.com closing connection %
And here's an unsuccessful run where there's no local sendmail daemon running:
% echo 'Subject: test' | ./mini_sendmail -v firstname.lastname@example.org ./mini_sendmail: connect: Connection refused %
