Hi!

the DNS config is (almost) irrelevant for your problem. To avoid the
``mail loops back to myself'' error, you need to teach your sendmail
all the names it should recognize itself by:

> Cwlocalhost
> # file containing names of hosts for which we receive email
> Fw/etc/sendmail.cw

(Better: put that into the m4 configuration master file:
> # take our own host aliases from /etc/sendmail.cw, so that we do not
> # need
> # to put host-specific stuff into the sendmail.cf
> FEATURE(use_cw_file)
)
