If I understand you correctly you have a user called "sales" and you want them to have just one login account - but email directed to either sales@abc.com or sales@xyz.com should end up in that one account.

In which case user /etc/virtusertable (you may want to check the virtusertable feature is enabled - do

grep virtusertable /etc/sendmail.cf

to make sure. If you get no output from that command then get back to me.)

Lets say abc.com is the main domain and xyz.com is an "alias" domain for all users then edit /etc/virtusertable and add

@xyz.com       %1@abc.com

If this aliasing should only be done for specific users, e.g. sales, then make it

sales@xyz.com       sales@abc.com

then do

cd /etc
makemap hash virtusertable < virtusertable
