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 sendmail.cf, add a line:
+Cw nova.foo.com
+
+or if you plan to have many of these, a better idea for maintenance is
+Fw/etc/mail/sendmail.cw
+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 sendmail.cw, you have to HUP the
+existing process.
+l8r...


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...

Details..

mailhost: gandhi.apic.net

virtual domains: skeeve.net

ALL mail coming to skeeve.net goes to gandhi... thats coooool... no probs.

Skeeve@skeeve.net (me) is list admin which is held on gandhi... 

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

Anyone understand this one?
