First you need to configure sendmail to route mails to your exchange server (SMTP)

Modify /etc/mail/sendmail.cf
modify the line starting with DS to
Code:
DSmymailserver.mydomain.com

restart sendmail
Code:
service sendmail restart

from the command line :
Code:
mail -s "test subject" example@gmail.com  <press enter>
this is my test email

.
