Unable to send email "Relaying denied"

Hi Friends,
I am unable to send email via outlook express from mine VPS on Redhat 9.0 . I am running webmin .
I have an entry in Sendmail options>SMTP port options as "Port=smtp,Addr=, Name=MTA" . The error given is "The message could not be sent because one of the recipients was rejected by the server. The rejected e-mail address was 'email hidden'. Subject 'trial', Account: 'email hidden', Server: 'hidden', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '550 5.7.1 <email hidden>... Relaying denied. IP name lookup failed []', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 550, Error Number: 0x800CCC79"

. When i change the entry to "Port=smtp, Name=MTA" the timeout error appears.
I have correct entry in the Local Domains with mine domain name listed there.

Also i can not see Sendmail M4 Configuration . The following error appears:

"The Sendmail M4 configuration base directory /usr/share/sendmail-cf was not found on your system, or is not the correct directory. Maybe it has not been installed (common for packaged installs of Sendmail), or the module config is incorrect."

Please help me what should i do.
Thanks for your time and effort.

Make this line look like

dnl DAEMON_OPTIONS (Port=smtp,Addr=, Name=MTA)

This allows Sendmail to listen on all available interfaces

Add to /etc/mail/access the IP address of what I think is a Windows box using Outlook like this RELAY (Use your own IP)

If I remember correctly Sendmail M4 Configuration is part of the Sendmail-cf package

When you make changes always restart Sendmail

I made the entry in file like 'dnl DAEMON_OPTIONS (Port=smtp,Addr=, Name=MTA)'and rebuild the file. Then the file contains the entry like
O DaemonPortOptions=Name=MTA .

Still i am not able to send the emails via outlok express.
Pl. tell me what errors i am commiting.
I shall be very grateful.
