If I understand your question correctly, you will need to smarthosts, one
on the LAN side, and one on the WAN/internet side. You will have to setup
the LAN smarthost to forward mail to the WAN smarthost that it cannot
deliver. You will have to enable the LAN smarthost and WAN smarthost to be
able to pass mail through your firewall. Sendmail uses DNS for most host
resolution, so you will need to setup MX records for the various LAN hosts
to go to the LAN smarthost.
Hope this helps.
