I've already gotten this resloved, thanks to you guys, I simply wasn't using
Fully quallified domain names, i thought I had set that, but a simply
overlooked configuration was at fault...

First we have to know what your MTA is (Sendmail, Exim, Postfix, Qmail,
...) I'm guessing postfix, and that you have the setup so that your mail
users are separate from the users on your box....  But that is just a guess.

You know we answer more MTA questions on this list than any Sendmail list
I've ever been on...
