configure solaris 10 mail to relay email alerts from SAN switch

I want to be able to use an account on a solaris 10 server, eg root@myhost

to act as a relay to forward mail to my domain account

The reason for this is to configure root@myhost as a mail relay on Brocade SAN switches - so that when a port goes bad i get an email alert.
The Brocade switch documentation is very vague (imho) on this ..but i've figured that if i configuire something root@myhost on the SAN switch i can configure mail/sendmail on myhost to forward traffic to my real domain email account.

I'm unsure of how to achieve this on the solaris 10 server mail configuration.

Hope this makes sense! My brain seems to glaze over when attempting to think about mail so help would be appreciated!
