Using Sendmail in Linux to send email through Bluehost


I'm having trouble getting Sendmail in Linux to send email through my Bluehost email. I've successfully sent it through gmail, but I need to use my Bluehost account. I've made the certificates and had no issues typing "echo 'Message" | mail -s "subject" example@yahoo.com" and it would send fine when I had my gmail account info plugged in. I tried just swapping out the gmail info for my bluehost info and now that same command won't send the email. I ran the m4 sendmail.mc>sendmail.cf command after I made changes and "service sendmail restart".

My authinfo file looks like this:
AuthInfo:mail.myDomain.com "U:example@myDomain.com" "I:example@myDomain.com" "P:My_Password" "M:PLAIN"
AuthInfo:mail.myDomain.com:26 "U:example@myDomain.com" "I:example@myDomain.com" "P:My_password" "M:PLAIN"

Any problems there?

The relevant part of my sendmail.mc looks like this:

FEATURE(`authinfo',`hash /etc/mail/authinfo.db')
define(`SMART_HOST',`mail.myDomain.com')dnl
define(`RELAY_MAILER_ARGS', `TCP $h 26')
define(`ESMTP_MAILER_ARGS', `TCP $h 26')
define(`confCACERT_PATH',`/usr/share/ssl/certs')
define(`confCACERT',`/usr/share/ssl/certs/ca-bundle.crt')
define(`confSERVER_CERT',`/usr/share/ssl/certs/sendmail.pem')
define(`confSERVER_KEY',`/usr/share/ssl/certs/sendmail.pem')
define(`confAUTH_MECHANISMS', `EXTERNAL GSSAPI DIGEST-MD5 CRAM-MD5 LOGIN PLAIN')
TRUST_AUTH_MECH(`EXTERNAL DIGEST-MD5 CRAM-MD5 LOGIN PLAIN')
define(`confAUTH_OPTIONS', `A')dnl

Everything else is default.

Am I missing something that would explain why gmail worked and bluehost isn't?
Thanks for any help and sorry if this is very obvious, I just can't seem to figure it out >.<

Contacted Bluehost and found that they don't allow you to use your domains to relay emails... Bumer
