All you have to do is add the list of addresses (ie. the RHS part,
after the @ symbol) to the file /etc/mail/local-host-names, one per
line.  This file should list all of the addresses that your server
does final delivery for.

This is a job for virtusertable -- read about what you can do with
virtusertable funtionality in /usr/share/sendmail/cf/README.  The
default FreeBSD configuration already includes virtusertable support,
so all you have to do is create a file /etc/mail/virtusertable into
which you put a line like the following:

    @virtual-domain.com      [EMAIL PROTECTED]

Then run make in /etc/mail which will process that file into the db
hash file sendmail uses to do it's lookups.
