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 cswiger at mac.com' | 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.
