Exclamation sendmail can't send mail from local mail server?

i have doamin example.other.sc from dyndns.com, runing a webserver in fc5, i can browse my webserver without problem,now i am trying to setup a local mail server using sendmail, i can recieve mails but can't send, because sendmail cannot attach my domain with my user name like user@example.other.sc but sending as user@localhost.localdomain, these are the changes i made to /etc/mail files:
in sendmail.mc:

in access file:
# by default we allow relaying from localhost...
localhost.localdomain RELAY
localhost RELAY RELAY
example.other.sc RELAY

in local-host-names file:
# local-host-names - include all aliases for your machine here.

in relay-domains file:

in virtusertable file:
@example.other.sc user

after make this is the output when i restart the sendmail:
# /etc/rc.d/init.d/sendmail restart
Shutting down sendmail: [ OK ]
Shutting down sm-client: [ OK ]
Starting sendmail: [ OK ]
Starting sm-client: [ OK ]

and this is my /etc/hosts file: localhost.localdomain.com localhost example.other.sc

any one can help please?
