Doubt regarding Sendmail?

I have been confused regarding this. Sorry if it makes no sense or is silly question.

May I know what does it mean when somebody says HE is unable to receive mail from different domain.
Say, I have a machine with IP: with domain.
Does it mean that it is in domain if I provide simply :

cat /etc/hosts innova

Say, I have another machine called with /etc/hosts:

cat /etc/hosts beta

These machines are all in the same network 10.14.x.x.

Does it mean both are in different domain?

Not really sure what you're asking, or if this helps at all, but and are in fact different "domains" (but on the same network).

Do You mean by simply providing hostname entry as to a machine make it as new domain. Even if I have two machine connected.
