What version of Ubuntu are you running?
Are you using the Desktop or Server Edition?
What mail applications do you have installed?

We can't give you any help until you provide a little more info on your setup.

Sendmail has had a lot of security issues; I'm not sure how well-documented it's installation on Ubuntu is, and I know it can be pretty complex to configure.

Why don't you give Postfix a try instead? It's well documented so there shouldn't be any issue setting it up, and just like Sendmail, you can configure it to work with PHP's mail() function.
