Have you rebuilt access.db? (makemap hash access.db < access)

BTW, if the system in question is accessible from the Internet, what  
you are doing is a bad idea.  You are allowing anybody to send spam  
through your system by simply using specific return address.

Better way to do it would be to enable authentication in Sendmail.
