Sendmail-error 553


When I try to send an e-mail from my rh7.1 server using sendmail version 8.11 I get the following error message.

<<< 220 ESMTP
>>> EHLO
<<< 250 8BITMIME
>>> MAIL FROM:<>
<<< 250 ok
>>> RCPT TO:<>
<<< 553 sorry, that domain isn't in my list of allowed rcpthosts (#5.7.1)
>>> RSET
<<< 250 flushed
>>> QUIT
<<< 221

Receiving mail is not a problem. We have recently changed ISPs from Netvigator to HGC and I notice the error message mentions that it is still trying to send messages through the old ISP (Netvigator). I have had a look at sendmail.cff but it does not mention netvigator anywhere. Thanks for your time.
