You are attempting to use port 587 but you are not authenticating.

Do you understand the warning and error messages? You will also need to have the FQDN added to your outgoing mail.

Is there a particular reason you are using Sendmail? I would recommend Postfix if you do not have strong reasons to stick with Sendmail.
