So here is my situation. I have this 2 DNS (say and with the same IP address (both A record) tied to this box. We have Google mail handing our emails . I want emails to forward to users at emails . My sendmail is getting confused and is delivering all emails locally instead of forwarding them to (which is specified in the .forward) . What do I do from the sendmail side to force external delivery . Thanks Much

You're seeing another instance of SMTP for multiple domains on virtual interfaces. – mad_vs Feb 5 '11 at 7:54
  • add "FEATURE(`mailertable')" to
  • run m4(make) to install new config, then restart sendmail
  • add to /etc/mail/mailertable " smtp:[]"
  • makemap hash /etc/mail/mailertable < /etc/mail/mailertable
  • test
