howto sendmail with redirected port


I have a fairly vanilla sendmail setup I've used before, but is not working now. I think the difference is that the IP address for the mail server and MX record resolves to a router which forwards port 25 to an machine with a LAN IP of 192.168.2.100. I think this is messing things up, but I don't know how to fix it. Here is my .mc file:

include(`../m4/cf.m4')

Here is the /etc/maillog info after trying to send from a local user account to my account at a remote location:

Notice the "gethostbyaddr(192.168.2.100) failed: 1" error.

I added 192.168.2.100 to my /etc/hosts file and got the following in maillog:

No more gethostbyaddr error, but still not working. I suspect the problem is that 192.168.2.100 does not correspond to the real external MX IP address, but if that's the case, I don't know how to fix it. Help?
