Unhappy configure SENDMAIL with webmin

Hi !

I am trying to configure linux RH 8 as mail relay within webmin .

I read

I didnt find the option where to configure that all incoming mail will be forwared to my intermal mail server ( exchange 5.5) ?
also to prevent relaying I want that the mail relay will except mails only for my internal users...I think I marked that option but now whan I telnet to the localhost on port 25 he recives all kinds of domains to send tham mail to, and not only my domain.what I did wrong !!!

another strange thing :

whan I telnet localhost on port 25 sendmail replayes but from the internet whan I telnet to the mail relay ip addresson port 25 it doesnt answer ( there isnt any problem with the fire wall because whan I conect the old mail relay ( windows 2000 'I only switch the cables ) there isnt any problem'
of corse I dont change anything on the firewall.

please please help !!

Please help! thank you.
