Well, I think that the changes you've made to sendmail.mc, were not 
applied to sendmail.cf, which is the actual configuration file that 
sendmail uses.
First, check the date/time stamp of both sendmail.mc and sendmail.cf in 
sendmail.cf should be newer.
If it is not, you should restart sendmail and/or run the command:

m4 sendmail.mc > sendmail.cf
