It depends on what mail transport agent (MTA) is actually installed.
It doesn't need to be sendmail itself (postfix or exim4 are easier,
some others may be even easier than those) but it does need to listen
to localhost:25 because - despite the name - Mail::Sendmail uses SMTP
not sendmail.  (At least the last time I checked.)

So, check the instructions for your operating system or MTA.

Hope that helps,
