My genericstable feature in sendmail seems to be ignored


I'm running sendmail on rh linux 8.0. I've got the basics up and running. However, I have a php server on there as well and mail sent from it was setting the from address to apache@machine_name.one_of_our_domains.net. What I want is the from to be set to someuser@one_of_our_other_domains.com. And eventually all mail will run through this and I want the domain for all mail to be set to one_of_our_other_domains.com.

I learned that with the MASQUERADE_AS macro, I can change the domain part. So I was able to get apache@one_of_our_other_domains.com. Then I read up (sendmail book by O'Reilly) and found that I can use the genericstable feature so that one user can be mapped to another in the "from" field for outgoing mail. So here is my setup

divert(-1)
#### basic .mc file for my company
divert(0)
VERSIONID(`$Id$')
OSTYPE(`linux')
define(`confCOPY_ERRORS_TO',`postmaster')
FEATURE(`genericstable')
MAILER(`local')
MAILER(`smtp')
GENERICS_DOMAIN(`one_of_our_domains.net')
GENERICS_DOMAIN(`one_of_our_other_domains.com')
MASQUERADE_AS(`one_of_our_other_domains.com')

Then, I set up my genericstable db as such

apache@machine_name.one_of_our_domains.net newuser@one_of_our_other_domains.com'
apache@one_of_our_other_domains.com' newuser@one_of_our_other_domains.com'

I then ran the makemap hash command and moved the resulting genericstable.db file to /etc/mail/genericstable. I then (of course) restarted sendmail.

The mail is being sent and received just fine. However, although my MASQUERADE_AS macro seems to be working, my genericstable feature seems to be ignored. And I don't see any errors in my mail log. In fact it says it was delievered and returns an ok status, as one would expect considering I get the mail.

Now my question is WHAT AM I DOING WRONG? Sorry! I'm just a little annoyed at sendmail's complexity and am hoping someone can see what I'm doing wrong. Thanks for any help you can give.
