sendmail doesn't forrward unresolved recipient domains to smart server

Hi all,

I have an HP-UX 11.31 server, and I have some applications, that need to send external mails from this server, installed on it. The problem is that when a mail is sent to a recipient of an unresolved domain, the mail delivery fails.
How to force local sendmail to forward all mails(except those sent to my server it self) as is to the mart server, without trying to resolve recipient domains.

In my sendmail.cf I have:
DSsmtp-server.mycompany.com

Thanks ...

You could use the /usr/newconfig/etc/mail/cf/cf/gen_cf script to customize your sendmail configuration.

>> Accept unresolvable domains
