your provided sendmail.mc shows that you have done zero customization. 
So please let me ask: do you have experience to setup and operate an MTA 
and especially Sendmail?

I am asking because that's not trivial and as you cannot judge about the 
error you are getting implies that you lack essential information. It is 
ok not to know how to run an MTA, but then you shouldn't.

At least you should configure Sendmail as a null-client. Do as Jason 
wrote and configure the SMART_HOST of your ISP. Take care for proper `' 
as those appear wrong in Jason's post. And make sure that the 
sendmail-cf package is installed so that the sendmail.cf can be rebuild 
after sendmail.mc customizations.
