Shalom Subrat,

The latest sendmail is available from

search for sendmail.

After that, with the exception of a cool tool HP provides called gen_conf everything is the same as it is on the site.

/etc/mail is the default location of the configuration files.

whence sendmail
# commmand to give you to default location of the binaries.
