Sendmail configuration issue in Unixware 7.1.x

Posted on 2006-04-05
Last Modified: 2013-12-05
I am having difficulty sending mail from my unixware server to any domain that has multiple dot entries after the @.


Good (Mail is delivered fine):

Bad (Getting a parsing error):

I believe my issue is with the file.  I believe there is a line in there somewhere that won't allow this double entry after the @.  The error message I receive is:

buildaddr:  no mailer in parsed address
/dead.letter... saved message in /dead.letter

Anybody know where in the sendmail configuration I would make a change that would allow this address to be sent to?

Difficult question, 500 points.  I first posted this problem under a different scenario, but got no responses.  After spending the afternoon troubleshooting, I believe it is a sendmail issue.
