Hi, I am trying to install sendmail on my Ubuntu 12.4, but when I use:
sudo apt-get install sendmail
I get a message:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree     
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package sendmail
I could not find anything on the Internet on this for two days of searching.

Do you have the universe repository enabled? That's where it lives.

You can also install a "normal" MTA like Postfix or exim: IIRC they'll provide you a sendmail application too.

Are you able to get anything else installed by apt? Perhaps your apt configuration for the respository is pointing to an old site, or offline.
