I have configured Sendmail to work with a smarthost by adding the following line to the configuration

define('SMART_HOST', 'smtp.ISP.TLD')dnl

and after that I issued

make -C /etc/mail

The mail log shows

Aug  8 17:51:23 x3tech sendmail[10677]: o78FpM8q010677: from=XXXXXXXX, size=64, class=0, nrcpts=1, msgid=<201008081551.o78FpM8q010677@mainframe.domain.tld>, relay=root@localhost

Aug  8 17:51:23 x3tech sendmail[10677]: o78FpM8q010677: to=XXXXXXXX@gmail.com, ctladdr=XXXXXXXX (1000/1000), delay=00:00:01, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay, pri=30064, relay=[127.0.0.1] [127.0.0.1], dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent (o78FpNmK010678 Message accepted for delivery)

So it seems it never passes on to the smarthost. Oh yes, and I'm using Debian 5.0

Check the DS in your sendmail.cf file it seems the make is not updating, i think i remember debian does their configuration in a non standard way but just do not remember how.

Turned out that it didn't compile correctly, now I just modified the compiled file, which worked.
