First post the complete real entries or something that looks like real 
entrys, because 'x's everywhere doesn't help me distinguish from this x 
or that x.

If you have a message to: RCPT='<user@example.com>' then you need a 
mailer table entry:

example.com	esmtp:[machine.our.domain]


example.com	esmtp:[]

IF the mail message is to RCPT='<user@host.example.com>', then you need 
more mailertable entries like:

.example.com	esmtp:[machine.our.domain]

Note the leading dot, which will look for subdomain/machines of a 
domain. With out the leading dot, it looks for an exact match after the 
@ sign.

However, what concerns me is that:

The sendmail macros are NULL. Its as though sendmail failed to do any 
RCPT processing before passing the values to the milter.

Make sure that FEATURE('mailertable', ....) is still present in you 
sendmail.mc and that the sendmail.cf is up to date. Like wise for the
