sendmail.mc file should be edited to accept and relay mails from other hosts than localhost.
You can then redirect this configuration using m4 macro to sendmail.cf.

Thats what I said. You will need to allow relaying from hosts other than localhost as well. You will have to look out for the option in the file. It is documented and says what the option is for.
Otherwise it will accept mails from localhost.
