You, Steve Birnbaum, said about something or other:

+The host is being told to receive mail for that address but sendmail
+doesn't recognize that address as itself.  You have to tell it.  
+In your, add a line:
+or if you plan to have many of these, a better idea for maintenance is
+and in this file, list each such domain, one per line.
+Then just kill -HUP your sendmail daemon process and the mail will get
+accepted.  Each time you add a line to, you have to HUP the
+existing process.

Yes this is fine and dandy... but there is one problem I have found 
so far that I CANNOT fix...

What happens when that mailserver itself tries to send mail to a virtual
domain it holds.... errors...



virtual domains:

ALL mail coming to goes to gandhi... thats coooool... no probs. (me) is list admin which is held on gandhi... 

Gandhi tries to send some email to and gets that same loopback
error as before....  

Anyone understand this one?
