Changing sendmail options

I haven't worked with sendmail much it, but I've been toying with. I have a few questions that I think are pretty basic, but I'm having a hard time to get them working.

My machine sends out email in the form of and I wanted to remove the machine name from the address so I edited the /etc/mail/ and added this line:

When I send email it appears to be working correctly, but our exchange administrator says that that emails are still coming in as I don't see this happening when I send email out to any of my other email accounts. Is there something else that I need to change or a reason why Microsucks Exchange is still seeing the full name?

Also, is the correct way to forward email from my machine to another SMTP server to edit the /etc/mail/ and add something like this?

dnl define(`SMART_HOST',`')
Thanks for the help!
