What am I missing?
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. > Also how can I set up wildcarding, so that mail for that domain that does > not go to a valid user gets directed to a specifc user on that system? 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.
