We really need to get some symantics defined for virtual server.
You "run on a virtual server". Does this mean your server hosts
multiple virtual domains and your domain is one of them? Or did
you mean to say you "run a virtual server" that hosts other domains
but your domain is the primary domain for the server?
You can not host any domain that does not have an MX pointing to
your server. (You could, but replies would always go to the MX'd
host and most likely bounce.) For example, I could not randomly
decide I want to host a list for AOL.com without AOL adding an
MX record to my host for that list. On the other hand, if AOL
configured an alias for firstname.lastname@example.org that points to
email@example.com, I could host the list. I would just have
to set the resend_host = aol.com for that list, and tell sendmail
to allow those messages back out of the system without rewriting
aol as mydomain.
