you have to add this to your sendmail.cf
O InputMailFilters= mailarchiva
Xmailarchiva, S=inet:8092 at 192.168.123.123 <inet%3A8092 at 192.168.123.123> (ip
and port of mailarchiva)
(i dont remember the sintax to add it to sendmail.mc and then run m4)

I've just checked an only stores emails from domains that it knwos about.
for example all localhost emails (logwatch, crontab notifications, etc) were
not stored in my config.
