You need an entry in /etc/mail/mailtertable like this:
You also need an entry in /etc/mail/access like this:
Then rebuild the database files -- on most Linux distros, you just
type "make -C /etc/mail"

Excerpts from /var/log/maillog would be more helpful. Also, be sure
that your Sendmail is not bound to the loopback address -- Red Hat
distros make Sendmail listen on 127.0.0.1 only, by default. You need
to edit /etc/mail/sendmail.mc, remove the DAEMON_OPTIONS line, and
rebuild sendmail.cf ("make -C /etc/mail") and restart sendmail.
