using sendmail through apache2

Jun 3 18:35:11 luke sendmail[7697]: n541Z21j007697: to=james.luke318@gmail.com, ctladdr=james (1000/100), delay=00:00:09, xdelay=00:00:04, mailer=relay, pri=30006, relay=shawmail.vc.shawcable [], dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent (ok: Message 69473869 accepted)

everything works fine. I checked my gmail account and the message is there. The problem I have is when I try to send mail from my website it doesnt work. The following is the log message when I try to send mail from my webpage...

Jun 3 18:38:11 luke sendmail[7718]: n541cBsg007718: from=wwwrun, size=212, class=0, nrcpts=0, msgid=<200906040138.n541cBsg007718@luke.steadydipp in>, relay=wwwrun@localhost

clearly the relay=wwwrun@localhost is wrong and no email is sent. The PHP code to send the mail is correct, there must something wrong with my sendmail configuration. Can someone tell me why mail is getting realayed to wwwrun@localhost instead of my ISP mail server? maybe I have to edit something in the (local-host-names) or (relay-domains) file??

any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

RE: using sendmail through apache2

do you have a smarthost (DS) defined in your sendmail.cf file?

If you can send email via sendmail, then it looks like there might well be a problem with your PHP scripts.
