The problem is resolved. Many thanks to
George Vagner, Crist J. Clark, Andrew Mitroshin, 
Ismail Yuenigul, and the other friends who are
on the list.

What I did is to add the "Relay denied" domains
to /etc/mail/relay-domains. Yes, it worked for
the listed domains. But all the rest were still
"Relay denied". Then I added my internal network
IP address to /etc/mail/access file and make the db
file and restarted sendmail. Wow, everyting worked! 

I should mention that the FreeBSD box is a gateway
(firewall). I could send  and receive mail, but only
windows workstation(another net) behind the gateway
got "Relay denied" error. 

Hope this will help someone later.
