Sounds like a sendmail misconfiguration.  Look at the "IgnoreDots" 
options or the -oi commandline option.

Take a look at /usr/include/sysexits.h on your system.  It lists all of
the standard exit codes for programs.  On a Linux 2.0.35 system I

   #define EX_NOUSER       67      /* addressee unknown */
And further up:

   *      EX_NOUSER -- The user specified did not exist.  This might
   *              be used for mail addresses or remote logins.

Are you sure sendmail is returning a 67, or is it your local delivery
