Sendmail DNS Problem???

I'm a newbie to sendmail and am installing for the first time. When sending
a message to an account on the server I have no problem. But when I send to
an external account I get a host name lookup failure. The domain I'm sending
to doesn't matter because all the ones that I've tried has failed.

The log entries for a message and the failure are below. I think that it has
something to do with the

Name server:

entry, I think that there should probably be a name server listed after the
":" but I'm not sure and am looking for confirmation of my suspicious, or a
correction. Also if someone could help me with the proper entries, or point
me to where I can find the proper entries for sendmail.mc, sendmail.cf or
