Yes but it's better to list the email addresses that you will accept rather than the ones you will reject.  That will save your server from constructing bounce messages for nonexistent addresses.

And depending on how you have sendmail configured, you might need

To:address at domain.com	RELAY

with RELAY rather than OK.
