Website can't send email to addresses in the suepellanddesigns.com domain

Websites (or, more precisely, sendmail) for domains that have their MX record set differently than their A record have a problem with sending mail to addresses in their domain. I found this potential solution on the web:

http://serverfault.com/questions/536051/how-do-i-configure-sendmail-to-send-mail-via-mx-record-and-not-to-localhost

Option 5: THIS IS WHAT WORKED FOR ME add a LOCAL_RULE_0 to the sendmail mc file

LOCAL_RULESETS LOCAL_RULE_0 R$* < @domain.com. > $* <tab>$#esmtp $@ mail.domain.com $: $1<@domain.com.>$2 

this needs to go at the end of the file and <tab> needs to be an actual tab character

So, the question is, how do we find and edit the sendmail mc file on an Arvixe host?

As a workaround, can we configure the rules that send email to send to suepellanddesigns@gmail.com and set up a forwarder at gmail to forward those to sue@suepellanddesigns.com?
