I don't use the 'local_procmail' feature of sendmail so can't comment on
those specific issues. I have a mail server using sendmail/maildrop and
use /etc/mail/virtusertable and /etc/mail/aliases, e.g.:

        [EMAIL PROTECTED] user-alias
        [EMAIL PROTECTED] user-alias
        user-alias:        "| /usr/local/bin/maildrop -d [EMAIL PROTECTED]"

I don't know off-hand whether or how using the 'local_procmail' feature
impacts on the use of aliases and virtusertable, but there might be a
solution in there for you.

If you can't find a solution you might also try asking on the maildrop
users list.
