Umm, yeah, covered in the Sendmail FAQ on www.sendmail.org.  One of two
ways.  Grab procmail if you don't already have it, and set it up to be your
"local delivery" mailer, or get the source to /bin/mail and tweak it to 
deliver to somewhere like $HOME/.inbox.  

No, I don't know how to do all those things, but you could probably 
look on the web and find out.
