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
