Problems sending mail thru relay server to another local server

Problems sending mail thru relay server to another local server

Problems sending mail thru relay server to another local server

(OP)
I am not sure if I setup the localhost daemon options for sendmail.cf and submit.cf for Solaris OS correctly.
I tried to setup both to go thru the localhost first then go to the email relay server. This seems to be working correctly but when I go to a server on the same network with the same sendmail configuration it rejects the emails.
