I meant that the domain being supplied by the sender is fake in that the
connection is not actually coming from that domain. The domain itself may
very well exist, but does not map to the IP address of the initiator of
the SMTP connection to your Sendmail.

I don't completely understand what you mean by this. If you follow the
advice that has been written on this list, you will end up with a
reconfigured Sendmail that will accept all mail but not relay any that you
don't want it to.
