Unhappy dovecot + sendmail not fully working


Hi I need to install a pop3/webmail and sendmail for one of our website. My sendmail is working great, after passing 2 days to make hotmail taking my email. Now i try to setup my pop3 with dovecot but nothing is working and really dont understand the trouble i have here.

the trouble is quite simple user unknown from sendmail when receiving email

i think its because sendmail try to check in the wrong file for the dovecot virtual users. if i create a local user its working but not for my domain.com.

sendmail[22430]: m0FMv5pK022430: from=<sender>, size=9345, class=0, nrcpts=1, msgid=<200801152257.m0FMv5pK022430@domain.com>, proto=ESMTP, daemon=MTA, relay=senderdomain.com [***** ip]
sendmail[22437]: m0FMv5pK022430: to=client, ctladdr=<client> (8/0), delay=00:00:01, mailer=local, pri=129345, dsn=5.1.1, stat=User unknown
sendmail[22437]: m0FMv5pK022430: to=<client>, delay=00:00:01, mailer=local, pri=129345, dsn=5.1.1, stat=User unknown
sendmail[22437]: m0FMv5pK022430: m0FMv6pK022437: DSN: User unknown

if i create a local user and put it in aliases for this client email i dont see unknown user but the email is no where my vuser dont have it and local user didnt. where im supose to check to make sendmail send email to "dovecot user"


here my conf of dovecot
