If the remote MTA accepted the mail for delivery, then the local
Sendmail is out of responsibility. Maybe the other mail system treated
your test mail to be spam (due to some misconfiguration).

Please provide complete log messages. Did the name lookup of the
recipient MTA fail or the one of your own Sendmail?

That is a misconception. a) Of course you can use Postfix or Exim as MTA
together with Squirrelmail. They have a sendmail command for
compatibility. b) You should not use "sendmail" in Squirrelmail's
configuration, but "SMTP" - because of SELinux.
