but when I send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] I thought it would bounce but instead it appears in my personal mailbox with the username user2 (user1 is a different account). I am even sending mail from a remote machine.
I cant figure out why it is delivered to me and also cant figure out why a bounce is not sent to the originator.
I don't support you have LUSER_RELAY set in your .mc?
If you want to understand how and why sendmail takes a given address and changes it and/or decides where to deliver it, use a command like:
% echo '3,0 [EMAIL PROTECTED]' | sendmail -bt ADDRESS TEST MODE (ruleset 3 NOT automatically invoked) Enter <ruleset> <address> > canonify input: < cswiger @ mac . com > Canonify2 input: cswiger < @ mac . com > Canonify2 returns: cswiger < @ mac . com . > [ ...many lines deleted... ] parse returns: $# esmtp $@ mac . com . $: cswiger < @ mac . com . >
....obviously using a relevant email address instead of my own. This will show lookups to your virtusertable and mailertable maps, and indicates whether the address will be handled for local delivery-- which looks something like:
parse returns: $# local $: cswiger
...or be handled for remote delivery to some MX via the E/SMTP mailer-- which is what the "$# esmtp $@ mac . com ." part above means (obviously :-), etc.
PS: You might obtain better help from a sendmail-specific list than here.
