Hi, I am having the exact same problem with a server running FreeBSD-7.0.
The hostname is : server1.mydomain.com
MX for mydomain.com is not server1.
sendmail -v user at mydomain.com < test.msg will result in user unknown
sendmail -v anotheruser at anotherdomain.com < test.msg will work.
If anyone knows how to get around this?

I've setup a new web server hostname doremi.ctgameinfo.com. When I try
to send mail to username at ctgameinfo.com it tries to deliver it locally
instead of to the mx server mx1.ctgameinfo.com.
In previous versions this seems to work correctly. Why would it be
trying to deliver locally this time? I'm running default sendmail config
that comes with the standard install.
Another server I have seems to have this problem even worse. It's a web
server, and for any of the hundreds of domains hosted on it (www A
records pointed at it, but MX records pointed elseware) it also tries to
deliver locally. I was able to get this mostly working by using a
smarthost to the actual mail server, but I don't understand why it would
be ignoring the mx records.
I've never had problems like these with previous versions. What has changed?
