Sendmail question

Hi,

Say I have a host "myhost.mydomain.com" running sendmail.

And I want root@myhost.mydomain.com to receive the messages send to "root@myOTHERdomain.com".

And say that I already created an MX record for "myOTHERdomain.com" is pointing to "myhost.mydomain.com".

What variable/parameter do I need to change in sendmail.cf to have "myOTHERdomain.com" as an alias domain for the local delivery to the mailboxes on "myhost.mydomain.com" ?

In other words: messages sent to root@myOTHERdomain.com should reach the mailbox of root@myhost.mydomain.com

Isn't that a link to a "Postfix" manual ( not "Sendmail" ) ?

I found the solution.

Unfortunately none of the above helped me finding it ...

Adding myOTHERdomain.com to the "local-host-names" file did the trick
