Yes, setting a bouncehost works. The snag is that the only sensible thing then 
must be to set bounchost to something neutral, like Mailserver. It cannot be 
set to domA or domB, as bounce messages from the other domain will then be 
utterly missleading. 

For the sake of argument, suppose that somebody wants to send mail to 
[EMAIL PROTECTED], but miss-spells the name and writes e.g. [EMAIL PROTECTED] He will 
receive a bounce message, but he will have no idea which message bounced, as 
there will no indication from where it come. So, his interlocateur Kvaksvik 
will be wondering why he hasn't received the message he is waiting for and 
thake his buisness elsewhere. 

Have I missunderstood something or is this really the state of affairs in
