The general recommendation is to *never* edit the sendmail.cf directly. 
Rather cd to /etc/mail and edit your freebsd.mc file adding:


(those are backtick, value, singlequote)


rm `hostname`.??
make && make install-cf
make restart

if you want to revert back you can simply delete the line from your 
freebsd.mc file and then remake and install the newly generated cf file.
