Sorry for the off topic request for help but i am sure that someone here 
will have had the same problem.

I am using mailertable to route mails to our sister companies after 
scanning them. The problem is that sendmail refuses to use the value in 
/etc/mail/mailertable even though it's in brackets and always uses the dns.

Config below

[root at mail-2 mail]# cat sendmail.mc | grep mailer
dnl FEATURE(`mailertable',`hash -o /etc/mail/mailertable.db')dnl
FEATURE(`mailertable',`hash /etc/mail/mailertable.db')dnl

I have tried both there not sure what the -o is for but it was in there 
as default on RH9.

the domain is in the relay-domains file

[root at mail-2 mail]# cat mailertable | grep abcd
.abcd.co.uk        smtp:[mail.abcd.co.uk]

I have overcome this problem by adding a zone file and mx on bind for 
the  host.

Thanks in advance.
