If sendmail received it, but majordomo did not, you probably have a
security/permission issue to deal with in sendmail. The fact that
the message ended up in mqueue kind of suggests that a message was
on it's way back out of the system. But again, since you can send
to users on the local system, the problem points to sendmail again.
Try this test. Create an alias on the majordomo machine like
(use a different right hand side if that is the same machine as
Send a message from MS mail service to firstname.lastname@example.org
and see if it is delivered to your mailbox off the majordomo
server. If this is successful, check that you do not have any
group or world write permissions on
and that all the directories exist.
