Sendmail config help


I have build a website (www.example.com) on machine A, with sendmail fuction to implement contact us feature.

I have another machine b to as mail server for example.com

When i send email to members at machine A, no problem (e.g. sender email is info@example.com)

However, when the member send a email to me through contact us form (e.g. to marketing@example.com), OR i send an email to myself (from info@example.com to marketing.com)

All mail won't go to machine B and captured by the sendmail daemon at machine A. since machine a doesn't have such email a/c , rejected by machine A.

I check the document of sendmail, it state

1)all mail in the client queue won't be process without the daemon, i know once i turn off the daeemon, it should delivery to machine b

is there any way for sendmail to send outgoing email from machine a and all email for localhost (example.com) delivery to machine A???

i try the smart host and mailertable, but the sendmail deamon on machine A for localhost seems supercede these two. all email will be captured by machine A sendmail deamon


Thanks in advance.
