Uh -- sendmail -bv doesn't do what you think it does. It only shows you what your
local sendmail would do with the message as it tries to deliver it. If it's not
for a local user, then all it says is 'send it to the SMTP server responsible'
and nothing at all about what the other machine would do with it.
The only way to find that out is by connecting to the remote sendmail, either
by telnet or by actually sending an e-mail.
