    Need to be able to relay several domains through it. For some reason RoadRunner locked it down from relaying anything but *.rr.com addresses..

    yeah, most of these get blocked by quite a lot of email servers anyhow (well, at least I've found projects to provide lists of public smtp servers to ease blocking).

    So how hard is it to configure something like sendmail? I have a server running Fedora right now...

    Install it and go from there. It should just run (from the init script! probably in /etc/init.d) after it's installed, but you might want to change it's configuration... There might be a wizard somewhere (at least, Ubuntu had one) for changing the most basic/common settings. I'm not sure you'll want to change shit in /etc/mail/sendmail.mc and then compile sendmail.cf (I think that's how it happens, I've never done it before)....
