Angry Sendmail Relaying Denied

Hello guys, I have a lot of problems with my sendmail, I can receive messages but I can't send, I always get a Relaying denied message, I checked a and old posts here in the forum, read all recomendations and this is what I did:

create a relay-domains file containing my domain
restart sendmail (It didn't work)

at says that I should add a PTR record in my DNS wiht my network addr . What is it?

Please, give me some help, I am workint around it about 2 days.

Here are my logs:

220 ESMTP Sendmail 8.11.2/8.11.2; Sat, 3 Nov 2001 13:22:28 -0600
250 Hello [], pleased to meet you
250 2.1.0 Sender ok
550 5.7.1 Relaying denied. IP name lookup failed []

add the line: relay

try that.

Your /etc/mail/relay-domains is supposed to look something like this, note the period at the end.

# Relay-Domains
