Yes thats what I use too (except the noreceipts).  It really is worth taking a good look through sendmail.mc and looking up every option you don't recognise.  I found that the default sendmail.mc supplied with my Mandrake packages contained all sorts of stuff that wasn't needed and was possibly objectionable (for example, relay based on MX, which I have say I consider a very undesirable thing to do).
I find the README file in /usr/share/sendmail-cf invaluable, but even that misses some stuff (like the noetrn option).
