Jan 3 11:08:37 ******** sendmail: unable to qualify my own domain name (********) -- using short name
Jan 3 11:08:37 ******** sendmail: be sure to set domain name in Dj macro in sendmail.cf

You seem you be have found:
Install a later version of sendmail or use the IPv4 addressing system.

DNS name lookup failed.
Use dig or nslookup to make sure you are getting good answers.
By default, sendmail will try and lookup the hostname of the recipient and directly deliver the mail.
If this is not permitted by your firewall, you may need to use an smtp relay server on your local network.
The simple way of doing that is the DS directive in sendmail.conf
You will need to check with network administration to see what the policy is.

Also, do you have an nsswitch.conf file ? If not, make one and make sure this line is in:
hosts: files [NOTFOUND=continue] dns
Then, put the mail server in your /etc/hosts file.
Still the same problem then ?
