Setting up mailertables

I am trying to set up mailertables with only some luck.

What I have is a host on my DMZ which will receive all mail for 2 domains and then redirect the mail internaly to the correct mailserver based upon the original domain the mail was sent to.

I set up a mailertable file like this:
domain1.com smtp:[host2.domain1.com]
domain2.com smtp:[host3.domain1.com]

The machine on the DMZ in called host1.domain1.com.

I was using sendmail -d38.4 -bs to trace what was happening and I saw this:

When I typed in mail from:louis@domain1.com it looks this up in the mailertable and excepts the mail.

When I typed in rcpt to:john@domain2.com it does not lookup the domain in the mailertable but does except the user.

After typing in some data it then lookes up domain2.com (using mx) and makes a conversation to the host.

Why is it not looking up domain2.com in the mailertable and just sending it to host3.domain1.com???

I do not have anything in my aliases file (I do not want to receive mail locally for anyone).

Thanks,
Louis

This was not the problem.  Actualy the problem was that text maps are broken in 8.11 of sendmail.  I switched to dbm and all works fine now.

However, since you provided so many other good suggestions on your web page I will give you the points.

Thanks a lot,
Louis
