That looks fine to me.

Sometimes you may need to edit /etc/mail/local-host-names to include a
list (one per line) of all the addresses (ie. everything after the
'@') that your server should do local delivery for.  Usually this is
only necessary if your mail server deals with the e-mail for a whole
network of machines, or if you use an e-mail address that doesn't
coincide exactly with the hostname of your server -- -eg.  I use

    infracaninophile.co.uk

but my mail server is called 

    smtp.infracaninophile.co.uk

What exactly is the error message that sendmail logs to
/var/log/maillog for your failing messages?  sendmail(8) is usually
pretty good at indicating exactly what's wrong although it does so in
language that can be confusing to the uninitiated.

        Cheers,
