Let me do the test now. This was working fine with sendmail 8.9.2
and majordomo 18.104.22.168.
As defined in /usr/local/majordomo/aliases.majordomo and I did
newaliases just to make sure the database is up to date.

fwong: "|/usr/local/majordomo/wrapper resend -l fwong -h mail.GAIANET.NET fwong-outgoing"
fwong-request: "|/usr/local/majordomo/wrapper majordomo -l fwong"
The actual name of the machine is earth.GAIANET.NET and

I'll do a test now to both fwong@mail.GAIANET.NET which uses
majordomo and then fwong-outgoing@mail.GAIANET.NET which should bypass
The test to fwong-outgoing@mail.GAIANET.NET seems to work
