No, SMARTHOST is the host name of your mail relay, see

You can use this option if your want that the part after the @ should look

Setup dma -> /etc/mail/mailer.conf and just use your favorite MUA
(mailx, mutt, Thunderbird, ...).  Just make sure its configured to send
mails through sendmail and not directly to your smarthost.
