I'm not a fetchmail user, but what you need to do is to configure fetchmail
to talk SMTP to localhost to deliver the messages it picks up from your
pop3 accounts (which I believe is its default behaviour anyway).
Make sure that sendmail is running, and is in daemon mode (i.e. it is
listening for connections on port 25). Something like "ps ax | grep
sendmail" should tell you that.
