Sendmail won't accept mail


I have a bit of problem setting up sendmail on my server.

I've gotten so far that I can send mail from my mail server and relay mail from my LAN computers through it. Also, local delivery seems to be working.
The problem is receiving mail from other domains. When I send mail from my gmail account to any user in my domain the mail gets delivered back to gmail as it exceeds the max hop count.
The mail gets bounced between my ISP mailserver which I use as smart host and between my server.
The problem seems to be that my mail server won't accept any mail it is supposed to receive.

I want the server to receive all mails to @mydomain.com

I have put 'mydomain.com' to my /etc/mail/local-host-names but it did not help.
How to get this thing to work?

Bit cleaned sendmail.mc
Code:

What do the logs show for an attempted message delivery (post a log chunk).

Maybe an issue with forwarding or a mail loop, what does the message returned from gmail look like header wise? What do you get when you do a 'dig MX mydomain.tld +short'? Have you restarted sendmail since config changes/initial setup? Have you regenerated the cf?

Appears to be working now. Updated alias database and fixed a typo in virtusertable.

The mail loop is between my ISP mailserver and my own. At least looking at the mail which got returned to gmail.

Hi,

Are you sure that your domain is added in /etc/mail/local-host-names?
And what is the output of:
Code:
sendmail -bv zmyrgel@wickedbsd.net
Regards
