If you've done a standard install then Sendmail should be installed as part of
the base installation.

ps -aux | grep sendmail will tell you if it's running. I'll be very surprised
it's not.

Of course, people on here will tell you to replace it with Postfix/Exim/qmail
dependant on their 'religious' bent. Personally I use Postfix as the port
includes a 'make replace' option which nicely replaces sendmail and the 
configuration files anre nicer to get on with (IMHO).
