"Sendmail-on-Solaris" question

I 've got a "Sendmail-on-Solaris" question.

I have set up a sendmail configuration to send email from a Solaris host via a Linux smarthost to the final destination.
Therefore I 've setup a sendmail which indeed connects to the smarthost, but.... in the process the recipient name is rewritten to another RCPT name (which by the way is "root@solarismachine.domain.local").
But root@solarismachine.domain.local is the sender!

So, if I do test like
echo "Subject: sendmail test" | sendmail -v
The email is sent TO root@solarismachine.domain.local (which arrives at the smarthost).

What do I do to have the sendmail client accept the RCPT of the existing user?

The looks like this:
VERSIONID(`$Id:,v 2002/12/29 03:54:34 ca Exp $')
define(`confCF_VERSION', `Submit')dnl
define(`__OSTYPE__',`')dnl dirty hack to keep proto.m4 from complaining
define(`_USE_DECNET_SYNTAX_', `1')dnl support DECnet
define(`confTIME_ZONE', `USE_TZ')dnl
define(`confDONT_INIT_GROUPS', `True')dnl
dnl If you use IPv6 only, change [] to [IPv6:::1]
FEATURE(`msp', `[]')dnl

Hope to hear, tnx!.
