I repeat. This fails. This will fail because what youare doing is
assuming that information about who the mail goes to is in the headers.
This is _false_. The way to do this is in the transport agent.
Sendmail has a very nice databse mechanism for doing this. use that.
it actually has a prayer of succeeding.
Could you elaborate more? I have read large chunks of the sendmail book but I
haven't seen any database mechanisms for routing virtual domains to common
aliases. Does sendmail support multiple alias files or LHS domain matching?
If the information is not in the header then I don't see how it could work.
does sendmail figure it out? Does my version work because I have only been
testing with intellegent mailers?
