Sendmail Configuration

Hi Folks

I often test CGI mail scripts by sending messages to a local account on my 
FreeBSD web server. This has always worked fine, until I re-configured the 
machine for IP forwarding via a PPP dial-up connection. Now, when the CGI 
script runs sendmail, it appears to be trying to connect to the remote DNS 
server to check the mail account name. Luckily, my IP filters do not allow 
sendmail to initiate a dialup connection. What configuration changes do I 
need to make, so that sendmail understands how to send messages direct to 
local accounts? A few pointers would be greatly appreciated.
