Of course not. You installed Qmail... and that's not... Sendmail... therefore
it has a different manual, config files, maillinglists... and fans :D

http://lifewithqmail.org/lwq.html look for section 2.8.4 "Create System Aliases"

basically, all you need to do is:
echo my_other_local_account > /var/qmail/aliases/.qmail-root    ** OR **
echo &my_other_email_address > /var/qmail/aliases/.qmail-root

Hope it helps,
