Unfortunately, your attempt to hide your domain name also prevents
those of us willing to help from helping you.
First, mail from outside your world (domain) has to know how to find
your domain. The same is true for web pages, ftp files, or any other
service you want to provide on "the net". DNS helps us with this so
we don't have to have multimillion line hosts files everywhere.
If your majordomo machine is behind a corporate firewall, you will
need to inform security and the mail admins of the address you are
using for majordomo (after the dns works).
Google is your friend when it comes to learning these kind of things.
While we at this list are happy to help when and where we can, I really
think your question is better suited to networking in general, or even
sendmail for a HOW-TO on getting email passed between machines.
