Okay, I have a server with the name bob.alex.net and I have assigned an aliase for it to be mail.alex.net, but what I really want is mail to be recieved at just alex.net.  What kind of tricks/tables do I do in my Sendmail config and what do I need for my DNS config?

Hi,
in your sendmail add a entry
Fw/etc/sendmail.cw

Make a file /etc/sendmail.cw and write all hosts and the domain in it, every in a new line. Restart sendmail and must work.
